Roy St. Christopher Rossow
December 2 - December 27
Gallery X Invitational Series Presents: Paintings by contemporary landscape artist Roy St. Christopher Rossow
Roy St. Christopher Rossow was born in Montego Bay, Jamaica. He emigrated to the United States at the age of 8 for better medical care after acquiring a severe case of polio. Raised in a small rural New England town, surrounded by corn fields and open pastures, Roy gained a love and appreciation for nature. He studied painting and computer science at Salve Regina University; receiving a BA and BS. After working for over 15 years as a digital artist, Roy decided to pursue a graduate degree in painting at the University or Massachusetts Dartmouth in New Bedford, M.A. to eventually teach painting and drawing as a college professor. Since completing his masters degree, Roy has been living and working in the historic downtown New Bedford, MA.
My appreciation for nature and the world around me was nurtured early on by the rural settings I was raised in. The different places and environments that I have since lived in, has been the inspiration to my work.
The landscapes I create are an exploration of the magic of natural and man-made light. In my work I seek to capture the poetic beauty of the landscape defined in these settings. I am drawn to the rich colors, sumptuous form, and value that light reveals. My paintings attempt to have a dialogue with the viewer and evoke humanistic feelings at varying levels that light and color create. I am fascinated by nature in its entirety, but currently my focus is my immediate sense of place on the landscape.

Raiders of the Lost Arts
June 10 - June 28, 2015
Way back, in the Summer before the Big White Out of 2015 a peculiar thing happened to some members of Gallery X. We all received a letter from Sue Hauck's hacked yahoo account. The letter was too close to the truth and we immediately feared identity theft! Before the authorities could be notified, in each of our names we found plane tickets, in our inboxes to Istanbul…all expenses paid. We were carted off on an mystical adventure to find ancient artifacts of a lost era in human civilization.
Raiders of the Lost Art is an exhibition where the limits are only your imagination within the theme of Modern Relics. From religious icons to cultural mythology we invited you to explore the expressions of ancient art. From depictions of the masculine / feminine relationship struggle to the polytheistic worship of nature, spirit animals and elemental motifs…ALL to be fused together in harmony.
There will be a public reception on Saturday, June 13th, from 7-10 pm to display our Art•ifacts. Attend! Tell some friends! Tell some strangers! You can pick up work on Sunday July 1st, from 11-3pm.
Drop-off delivery dates are from May 27th through June 7th, during regular gallery hours, 11am - 3pm. Hanging day is Monday June 8th. If you have any special requirements for display, please make them clear! The show opens on Wednesday, June 10th, and runs through Sunday, June 28th.
