Margaretville – “The Holiday Show” opening this week at Margaretville’s Longyear Gallery is more than an art show; it is a vibrant, attractive, and community oriented activity. The annual event features the artwork of all Longyear Gallery members. An Artist’s Reception will take place Saturday, Dec. 2, from 3-6 p.m.
As in previous Longyear Gallery Holiday Shows, Longyear artists will be presenting their watercolors, prints, monotypes, photographs, drawings, ceramics, objects, and small oil paintings in “The Holiday Show.” Any purchases may be taken home at the time of sale rather than when the exhibit is over.

Its members include artists Robert Axelrod, Marcia Clark, Janice De Marino, Neil Driscoll, Ann Lee Fuller, Elaine Grandy, Robin Halpern, Jennifer Jefferson, Louise Kalin, Hedi Kyle, David Leveson, Margaret Leveson, Helane Levine-Keating, Patrice Lorenz.
