 Exhibit open May 31 - June 25

Opening Reception: Thursday, May 31st, 5-7 pm 



"Amazonas" oil painting by Jamie Townsend


"Looking at Jamie’s art is like walking through a forest of windows, each a voyage into a city or countryside of wonder and amusement. Inside comes out, outside comes in. Reality is also aboard. A super ride.”

Scylla Liscombe (Poet, Dancer, Sarasota, Florida)



Over the past year, Townsend has been focussing both his two-dimensional and three-dimensional work upon breaking up the space until it resolves the original choas, to one degree or another, that he'd brought to it.

A bold new mix of form and eye-popping color that you will not want to miss!
