Community radio station WOMR will be hosting a meet-and-greet to coincide with an art opening at the Cross Rip Gallery in Harwich Port on July 12th from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Refreshments will be served, and there will be music by jazz keyboardist Dylan Routhier.
The exhibit opening on the 12th is titled “Good Vibrations,” and everyone is invited to stop in, enjoy the art, and mingle with artists, WOMR staff, DJs, and other volunteers.
The name Cross Rip Gallery was chosen by artist/owner Georgene Riedl not only to recognize its location in Harwich Port on Nantucket Sound and the legendary “rips” found in its waters, but also to symbolize many different currents of art meeting in one place to create an exciting and ever-changing medium of artistic expression. Situated in an 1830’s Cape, Cross Rip Gallery features contemporary abstract and figurative fine art by award-winning and emerging artists. The gallery specializes in “art with an edge” so that visitors know when they step inside that they will be rewarded with dynamic, imaginative and innovative work with fresh perspectives. Cross Rip Gallery is not only set up “Gallery style,” but sculpture, paintings, photography, reliefs, watercolors, and collages are also displayed in a residential setting so that collectors can easily visualize how a work of art would look in a home setting with natural lighting.
There is ample and convenient parking available with many restaurants and shops a stroll away.
