For its June 23 opening, Hurricane Gallery is sending out a final call to artists in all media.

Hurricane Gallery is located in a very old, very big, completely refurbished barn up a winding but excellent and not very long dirt road within a surprising few minutes of Route 1. The barn and gallery, surrounded by woods and blueberry fields, may seem not quite of this world but artist and owner Robert Macdonald said “Expect a hurricane, an art hurricane of great variety and vitality, to happen here.”

Anyone who would like to see last year’s closing show, which featured paintings of playful Sumo wrestlers and violent scenes from Japanese mythology, as well as the inevitable lighthouses and mountains, is welcome to come at almost anytime before the new exhibition begins. Hurricane Gallery is located at 175 Quarry Road, just off Depot Street. For more information, call 832-4062 or 701-7477; or send email to
