Current Harrington Gallery Exhibit
Road Trip – Allied Arts West – Poetry by the Monday Night Poets – June 11 – August 13, 2022
Different people will bring home different memories from the same trip. For one traveler, it is the car they drove in, the view out the window, or the people they met. For another, it is what they brought home, whether that be an abstract mental image or a cluster of picked flowers.
At the conception of the exhibition, the award-winning professional artists of Allied Artists West were given the theme, “road trip,” and each took off on their individual interpretive journeys. Thus, the show is a collection of different media and varying interpretations of what a road trip might inspire. Most artworks are accompanied by poems complimenting the visual piece and were written by The Monday Night Poets, a local writers’ group.
The Harrington Gallery is pleased to present its upcoming show, “Road Trip,” with Santa Clara County-based group, Allied Artists West (AAW). The exhibition will be open from June 11 to August 13, 2022, with the reception on its opening day, June 11, 2022. This will be the group’s second showing at the Harrington Gallery and will feature works by the professional collective of award-winning and nationally renown artists.
