Welcome to the 2023 Season!

Explore the variety of art spaces in both towns.


Featured locations


Imago Gallery– 36 Market Street
Stop by Imago Gallery to view “Visual Alchemy” and try your hand at gesture drawing.
Art Night participants are invited to Imago Gallery to view abstract artwork created by IFA artist Anne Marie Rossi and to try your hand at gesture drawing, an artist’s method for loosening up, warming up and honing visual acuity.
You don’t have to know how to draw, the end product is not the point. You won’t even be looking at the paper!
If drawing is not your thing, we welcome the literary minded to help create a community poem inspired by the gallery and the gesture.
And you can do both if you like. It’s a real happening

Made in Warren – 476 Main Street
Warren-based painter Barbara Swanson will be demonstrating her painting technique with water color pencils and watercolor from 6:00 – 7:00 pm.

For Jossy Lownes, color comes first: a dab here, a swash or stroke there, she draws from a catalog of visual memories. Working in oil or acrylics, her enthusiasm for life conveys energy onto the canvas, as she is searching to share the vast wonders of nature and reveal the aspirations we all secretly hold within. Over her 40 year career, Jossy has trained with many of the art world’s most notable talents, and showcases her artwork in the permanent collections of several noteworthy institutions.
