Treasures, curated by Beth Kantrowitz and Kathleen O’Hara of Drive-by Projects, brings gems from Gateway Arts together with a selection of works by gallery artists.
Treasures….. this exhibition is a collaboration between Gateway and Drive-by Gallery artists. As curators, we see each work of art as a treasure. Whether a painting, a drawing, or a sculpture, each piece is something to appreciate, value, cherish, and hold in high estimation. The merging of the works from Gateway and our gallery enables the viewer to enjoy and relish each and every work of art.

She has been working at Gateway since 2013.
“Making things makes me happy and when other people like it I feel good about myself,” Alison added.
