Moving art in downtown New Port Richey


A majestic egret taking flight, a rolling ocean tide captured in blue hues, a mirror-laden mixed media sculpture depicting falling rain, and a handmade train set that keeps on chugging.

Those are just a few of the offerings at the Downtown New Port Richey Art Gallery through Aug. 30.

"Art in Motion" is the theme for the main exhibit, and plenty of local talent answered the call for artists in unique fashion, said gallery director Bonnie Bratby-Carey.

"It's kind of different," she said. "I was interested to see how our artists would interpret motion, and they did a wonderful job."

Also, the West Pasco Quilters' Guild is presenting children's quilts with the theme of "Fabric in Motion," and you can view the varied works of students who participated in the gallery's KidsZone Summer Art Series classes.
