Carega Gallery hosting opening reception on July 17 for artists who are summer residents of Sandwich

SANDWICH — The Patricia Ladd Carega Gallery will hold an opening reception on Wednesday July 17 from 5-7 p.m. for  three exceptional exhibits featuring the work of summer residents, John Winslow and Michael Doyle, along with that of Michael Rich, who is inspired by his summers in Nantucket.
Light refreshment and a selection of strong paintings by these three established artists are on the evening's agenda. The gallery is located at 69 Maple Street in Center Sandwich.
Michael Doyle lives and works in southern New Jersey. His landscapes and portraits are intimate invitations into his world where the old and broken become beautiful renderings of the past and gardens, ponds and brooks become special places begging for a visit.
John Winslow is from Washington, DC . He has spent many years in Sandwich where is family has summered for generations. Both his mother and daughter are also artists. Realism and abstraction co-exist and come together in Winslow's work.
Michael Rich is an abstract painter whose work is inspired by the waters of Nantucket Island and the hills of Italy where he has spent time on sabbatacal. He is a professor of art at Roger Williams University in Rhode Island and a practitioner of yoga. Eastern philosophy and art have influenced Rich. "His paintings and drawings of the past decade have explored through the language of abstraction the notion of place."
