– About the Gallery –

The gallery ART ON 1ST presents an aesthetic and interesting variety of work that expresses individual talents of artists.

While featuring the paintings of owner/artist Rita Gould, other artists are also on display. Gould, who has studied art and art history, expresses herself predominantly with oils, but enjoys other mediums as well, including encaustics. See her work here. Her works range from realism to expressionism. She does portraits and commissions.

Other artists in the Gallery present an eclectic gamut of styles and mediums from representational to abstract. Artists’ works are periodically featured to give a larger view of each artist’s expression.

The gallery offers work space so that the exercise of creativity in the gallery is an active rather than static enterprise and visitors are welcome to view art in progress.

Art on the walls is constantly changing. Some paintings have printed commentary from the artist‘s experiences so that reading about the works becomes a part of the viewer’s experience.
