The idea of ‘Large Works’ first came about through brain-storming led by Elaine Grandy and Ros Welchman during a Gallery Committee Meeting. Grandy and Welchman are currently active on the board of directors for the Roxbury Arts Group and are both established and respected artists themselves. “We were excited about the possibilities ‘Large Works’  offered artists, allowing them to ‘go big’. We had no idea what to expect and were overwhelmed by the artists’ responses to this challenge”, said Jenny Rosenzweig, Executive Director for the Roxbury Arts Group. Rosenzweig added, “Every time a large piece came in for the installation, the excitement level rose. Each piece is magnificent and together they make an awe-inspiring show.”

The art pieces represented in ‘Large Works’ utilize many mediums and genres by means of paintings, murals, fabric sculptures and more. Local and regional artists represented in this grand-scaled show include: Nancy Barton, Beth Caspar, Adam Cohen, Louis D’Amico, Ann Dubois, Fred Duignan, Tabitha Gilmore-Barnes, Robert Gould, Samuel Guy, Kate Hamilton, Laura King, Helene Manzo, Dana Matthews, Gary Mayer, Nat Thomas, Gerda vanLeeuwen, Corneel Verlaan, Beatrice Wolert, and Peter Yamaoka. ‘Large Works’ will be on exhibit from March 7 through April 18, 2015.

The program is supported by the New York State Council on the Arts, the A. Lindsay and Olive B. O’Connor Foundation, the Robinson-Broadhurst Foundation, and the generosity of our business sponsors and individual donors like you.
