Pentimento: honoring the process of change

A group show of past and present artist-members celebrating the end of our 20th year.

Waterstone Gallery is concluding its 20th Anniversary Year with this group exhibition of work by the 16 current and 20 previous artist-members.  The title of this exhibition is Pentimento.  Pentimento is an alteration in a painting, evidenced by traces of previous work, showing that the artist has changed his or her mind as to the composition during the process of painting.  We are using this title as a metaphor for the gallery itself, which exists in its current state only due to the many hearts and hands that have shaped it over the last 20 years.

This exhibition of small artworks showcases the range of talent that has been a part of Waterstone’s 20 year history.  The part not visible to the casual viewer is the community spirit and years of hard work by each and every member, past and present, that has made the gallery what it is today.

Waterstone Gallery celebrates its history with this show.  We pay tribute to those who have been a part of its creation and continuance, and honor the contributions made by all the artists who have shown at Waterstone over the last 20 years.
