Abstract Imagery by Chuck Guest, August 4–30, Gallery, Opening Reception, Monday, August 3, 7:00 pm: Chuck Guest often sits for hours studying the ever changing ocean and sky with its incredible beauty near his second home in Beachmont, MA.

He makes his own stretchers from wood reclaimed in Vermont where he primarily resides and stretches all of the canvasses for his work.
