West Onto the East
West Unto the East" is an upcoming show at Gallery X featuring the work of three artists whose current paintings share an oriental inspiration.
Lori Bradley presents an installation of twelve paintings from a body of work influenced by the line quality and dreaminess of landscapes and plants depicted in Japanese screens. Through lush images of flowers and vines, the work addresses the lure and entanglement of nostalgia.
Steve Fraga is exploring parallels between various eastern and western religions and cultures that he views as dynamic and wondrous in their searches for transcendent purpose to the human endeavor for love and peace. He is exhibiting paintings and printed poems.
There are fifty-six cards in the portion of the tarot known as the minor arcana, which is the ancestor of the modern poker deck, and Nik Ukleja has created a miniature oil painting for each one of them. The four suits are each given an oriental theme in this series, with Chinese swords, Indian wands, Japanese cups, and Arabian pentacles rendered in distinctive palettes. The Tarot Paintings are detailed and full of the rich symbolism, which has been used in fortune telling for centuries, but can also be viewed simply as beautiful scenes of exotic people and places.
All three artists are showing new works never exhibited before.
The opening reception in the is Saturday, October, 18 from 7-10 in the Main Gallery
Opening at the same in the Douglass Gallery is a one-person exhibition by painter Paul Menard.

Frederick Douglass Gallery
Welcome the fall gallery season by visiting Gallery X to view New Bedford artist Leo Allen's colorful one-man show of paintings in oil in the Frederick Douglass Gallery.
Leo, who lives in New Bedford, began painting several years ago and, in 2007, opened his first gallery in Rockport, Massachusetts. The subject matter of his modern art embodies the spiritual and existential hold that the sea has always had on him. The paintings, such as those in this solo show, "Eyes of Sea", are a means by which Leo expresses his relationship to the sea which was deepened during his service in the U.S. Coast Guard.
