ARTchat for Artists with Georgene Riedl, Director of Cross Rip Gallery
Time & Location
Georgene Riedl, the director of Harwich’s new Cross Rip Gallery, will offer artists her views on creating and selling art. Cross Rip specializes in “art with an edge”-- dynamic, imaginative and innovative work with fresh perspectives, presented in the residential setting of a 1830’s Cape. This is a casual potluck social. Artists are welcome to bring examples of their own artwork to get feedback from fellow artists or simply to share. A projector and laptop will be available for digital images.
Georgene Riedl is also an artist and her background includes running a travel agency, which she credits with helping her run a successful gallery. Cross Rip Gallery features contemporary abstract and figurative fine art by award-winning and emerging artists. Artwork is not only displayed “Gallery style,” but sculpture, paintings, photography, reliefs, watercolors and collages are also integrated into a homey setting so that collectors can easily visualize how a work of art would look in their homes with natural lighting.
Riedl chose the name Cross Rip Gallery to recognize its location in Harwich Port on Nantucket Sound with its legendary cross rips found just off shore and to symbolize the many different currents of art that meet in one place, creating an exciting and ever-changing venue for artistic expression.
