Sensitive figure paintings from a trio of top local artists, Tom Maderos, Barbara maderas.jpgDowns and Claire Thorson, will be on exhibition through October 29 starting First Friday at Michaelangelo Gallery.

The Artist’s Reception – Friday, October 1, 6-8:30pm – will be held at the gallery, 1111-A River Street.

Sharing studio sessions together, the three painters have evolved rich and varying perspectives on the same model subjects, and this show will offer a vivid glimpse into the differences that style, perspective and palette can make on a finished artwork.
