New Era Gallery will open “Early Summer 2013” Saturday, June 22, with an artists’ reception from 5 to 7 p.m. The show will feature work by Michael Chandler, Edward Movitz and Cristy West.

Chandler’s work crisscrosses the territory between representation and abstraction with remarkable agility. Movitz’s paintings and prints are graphic representations of iconic island imagery, while West’s paintings and collages blend abstract color and drawn markings.

The Windy Way Barn, located directly behind the gallery, will concurrently feature an installation of larger abstract works on paper by Daveda Movitz. The exhibition will run through July 10.

Early summer gallery hours are Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, call 863-9351 or visit
