Mixed media work by Keith Hollingworth brings images of birds together with found objects at Gallery A3 in the month of January.  While the artist has for many years used varied found objects to produce his pieces, in this body of work he introduces birds in a fresh context. “The birds can be read as symbols, metaphors, objects, talismans, etc. The juxtaposition to other objects in pieces gives the viewer a sense of expression, meaning, concepts, and the inference to the natural world,” says Hollingworth.

The exhibit opens with a reception at the gallery, 28 Main Street 1D, on January 5 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. and runs through January 28.   There will be an Art Forum Online on Thursday, January 19 at 7:30 pm.  Hollingworth will discuss his work and answer questions. See the gallery website to register for this online event, which is free and open to the public. This program is supported in part by a grant from the Amherst Cultural Council, a local agency, which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

Gallery hours are Thursday-Sunday 2:00  p.m. – 7:00 p.m.  Masks and social distancing are required.

About Gallery A3
Gallery A3 is a contemporary, fine art gallery in downtown Amherst, Massachusetts. Members of our artist-run gallery include painters, sculptors, photographers, printmakers and mixed media artists. You can find us in the Amherst Cinema complex along with Amherst Coffee, GoBerry Yogurt and Osteria Vespa restaurant.

Gallery A3 was founded in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks on 9/11. A group of local artists believed art to be essential to the health and healing of a community and began the gallery as a place to share ideas and artistic support. Since that time, the gallery has been home to over sixty artists and is now celebrating twenty years of monthly shows with openings and forums. All events are free and open to the public.

Gallery A3 strives to enliven and enrich our community by offering exhibits with public openings and open forums. It established and actively participates in the monthly art walks, Amherst Arts Night Plus, and supports regional artists with an annual juried show. It serves its own membership with conversations and programs that bring established professional and newly-emerged artists together, promoting artistic development and encouraging the creation and exhibition of exciting, new contemporary art work.
