A Taste of Gateway 2020

Gala cancelled due to COVID-19; we held a four-part online exhibition series, as well as a Fine Art sale, to honor the fundraiser.

This stunning original work of art, Untitled, is by artist Gabrielle Sichel, from her “Great Moose Lake” series, set in Heartland, ME. Congratulations to Gabrielle on the significant sale of this artwork.

The Annual Beverly Bernson Award

The Family of Donna Johnson

At A Taste of Gateway, this prestigious award honors persons who have made outstanding contributions to the studio art center. The Family of Donna Johnson has made generous gifts to Gateway over the 24-year tenure of artist Donna Johnson. Donna’s family has expanded technology in our studios, advanced our studio art programming into the digital realm, and have been dedicated supporters of Donna, and all of the artists at Gateway. Donna’s bright spirit and dedication to art enlivened the studios until her retirement in early 2020. Donna has a memorable legacy as a distinguished and highly collected artist.
