Artwork is to be presented as a cohesive collection with a collective minimum of two works and a maximum of six. As space is limited, submissions will be juried for eligibility.

The Pairs, Triads, and Collections Show will run from Mid November 2018 through Mid-February 2019 with a small evening reception on December 1, 2018. There will be plenty of Holiday Shopping traffic, so sales should be brisk.


Mandy Fariello and Jenny Kelley

Mandy Fariello’s art encompasses bright colors, textures, and layers to be excavated. After many years of concentrating on collage and mailart, she has recently shifted her focus to mixed media abstract painting. She is a juried artist in The Russell Gallery in Plymouth and has won numerous local awards. Mandy has Duxbury ties reaching back to the 1600’s and has been living in town for the past 26 years.

Jenny Kelley received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2005. She specializes in floral still life and is passionate about painting from life observation. An award-winning artist, Jenny is a member of the Copley Society of Art, a Signature Member of American Women Artists, and a very proud member of the Duxbury Art Association.
