The William Ris Gallery in Jamesport will showcase painter Sherri Wolfgang’s series Nick.e.lo.de.on, 11 life-size paintings that explore youth, dance, strength and the male form.

Wolfgang, who lives in Westport, Conn., is a contemporary renaissance artist known for her figurative works. She worked in illustration for 20 years and has been showing her work in galleries for the past 10 years.

“We’re known for variety and diversity,” said Mary Cantone, owner and director of the gallery. “It’s totally different from what I’ve done. I think this is going to work well.” (more…)

The opening day featured live music, outdoor games and a food truck from Christopher Michael Catering. (more…)
