Welcome to Hamilton Street Gallery, located in downtown Bound Brook, New Jersey, is an exhibition space for contemporary visual art. We welcome both emerging and established artists residing in Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey. All media is considered and we encourage work that is new and experimental. There will be 6 or 7 annual group exhibits, some of which will be juried and curated by our gallery staff, and others by guest curators. Shows will run between 6 and 8 weeks. They will be thematic and versatile in nature, ranging from whimsical to the audacious, providing artists with the means to articulate their ideas about the world. Also, we hope to stimulate the creative pulse of the community by conveying an atmosphere in which to experience a focused, personal and enriching engagement with art.
Hamilton Street Gallery is proud to present nineteen artists and craftsmen in this juried exhibition entitled “Heart Wood.” All of the exhibitors use wood as their primary media and source of inspiration. Various incarnations of the wood are used, including root burls, tree branches and bark, wood veneers, and found wooden objects such as table legs, buoys and firewood. They range from the finest hard woods such as cherry and walnut, to salvaged pieces from Hurricane Sandy. The artists display a rich array of styles in wooden sculptures and constructions, wood engravings, mosaics, intricate carvings, marquetry and much more. The exhibit will run from November 12th to December 29th with the opening reception on Saturday, November 12th from 2 to 5 pm. All are welcome.
