"Abnormal Nature" Paintings by Matt Roschy & Kerry Frederes @ The Wright Gallery :: Downtown JTNY
Posted July 13, 2010

This Saturday, July 17th, from 6-10pm, The Active Artists Alliance and the Arts Council for Chautauqua County are excited to present the opening of "Abnormal Nature", a show by Matt Roschy and Kerry Frederes, two well-respected local painters and old friends who are having their first show together, as well as each artists' first Wright Gallery show.

Although they've each been painting continuously for 10+ years, both Artists are fairly reclusive and participate in very few shows lately. They were reconnected with one another recently when they each participated in our AAAlliance Spring Equinox event. Peoples' reaction to their work was very strong and positive, so when the opportunity arose to set them up with this Wright Gallery show, we jumped at it. The work will be hanging through the first week of September.

The Wright Gallery is located on the 2nd floor of the Arts Council Bldg, 116 East 3rd Street in Downtown Jamestown.
