Abbie Read’s work to be shown at the Sohns Gallery

The Sohns Gallery, located in The Rock & Art Shop (at 36 Central St, Bangor), presents collage works by artist Abbie Read. The show runs from August 1st through September 17th.  August 25th at 6:30 will be a reception and an artist talk at 7:00.

Abbie Read’s large impressive assemblage installation “Library” was on display in the Sohns Gallery in 2015.  She is back in the gallery showing her new Paper Collage works. Abbie Read is drawn to the stained and abused surfaces of old books and discarded objects, the stuff of previous lives and times and the rustier, the more ancient looking the better. She uses her collected objects to create her abstract collage works. One body of work on display showcases exquisite range of reds inspired by the colors of the blueberry barrens on Appleton Ridge in the fall. This captivating gallery show has a range of sizes and prices.
