The Opening Reception Ceremony for Everywhere and Elsewhere II debuted on Thursday, Jan. 21 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Just outside of the gallery were different foods, deserts and refreshments for all to enjoy after viewing the opening of the new gallery.

The gallery displays many diverse pieces by artists Mike Behl, Angelina Gualdoni, Dan Gualdoni, Ron Laboray, and Nancy Newman Rice. Each set of pieces by the artists were all similar in theme.

One artist in particular, Dan Gualdoni, has a unique style when it comes to his paintings. Gualdoni covers his paintings in a thin layer of glue before he even begins his painting process. The process of the glue makes it support the canvas more.

This way, Gualdoni can reuse the same canvas if he wants to start over again.

Sometimes I do 10 to 15 paintings before I finally like one and want to keep it as is, Gualdoni said.

The paintings can take a handful of months, or sometimes just one day to finish, Gualdoni said.

His pieces in Everywhere and Elsewhere II mostly have to do with some kind of landscape. The paintings are not any particular place, just somewhere he develops in his head, Gualdoni said.

“There is something generic about land meeting sky,” Gualdoni said. Along with the glue technique, Gualdoni also uses a printmaking technique. Most of his paintings are oil on canvas. He also doesn’t mind stray marks or scratches on his paintings. Accidental things can work into the painting, Gualdoni said.

Along with Gualdoni’s oil on canvas, some of the other artist’s mediums are, acrylic on panel, gouache on archival inkjet print, and surfboard resin with auto enamel on aluminum.

The gallery runs until Feb. 12, and the hours of operation are, Monday through Thursday 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.Screen Shot 2016-01-29 at 4.22.49 PM
