3rd on 3rd Gallery opens with ‘Strange Allure’

3rd On 3rd Gallery will open again on May 10 with Strange Allure.

Strange Allure is an exhibition of recent art and photography by 15 artists from the western New York region, a number of whom have not exhibited in Jamestown before. While the selection is widely divergent, a through-line emerges of work that is both formally rigorous and ardently subjective.

The artists are Christopher Balaskas (illustration), Kent Brown (painting), J Colin Caisley (painting, drawing), Riko Chandra (photography), Debra Eck (installation), Allie Hartnett (porcelain/photography), Steve Lafreniere (wall installation), Anthony Leone (painting, drawing) Will Northerner (painting, drawing), Ashley Ordines (photography), Jennifer Randall (photography), Christina M. Riccio (porcelain sculpture), Everett Shelow (installation), Alex Speer (photography) and Alison Stinely (painting).

The show was curated by Fredonia artist Anthony Leone and Jamestown graphic artist Steve Lafreniere, who has curated two previous exhibitions including “These Are Days: 10,000 Maniacs 1981-2011” at 3rd On 3rd Gallery.

The public is invited to an opening reception Saturday, May 10 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Strange Allure will be open from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on week days through Friday, June 6.

The reception is free and open to the public, and there will be soft drinks, juice, beer and wine on hand.

3rd On 3rd Gallery is located at 116 E. Third St. in Jamestown, New York on the 3rd floor of The Reg Lenna Center For The Arts.

3rd On 3rd Gallery shows are made possible by support from New York State Council On The Arts.
