Winthrop Gallery will host a reception on Saturday (Sept. 22) for the opening of its new exhibit, “Harvest.” The free event will be from 11 a.m.- 3p.m.; refreshments will be available. The show opens Wednesday (Sept. 19) and continues through Nov. 10.

According to press information, “In this show Winthrop Gallery artists offer artworks that reflect upon the fullness that we experience in the fall harvest. Expressed in paintings, drawings, photographs and more, this show is a celebration of fall.”

Among the offerings, gallery artist Susan Donahue will exhibit her oil painting “Wheat Field between Winthrop and Twisp,” depicting a field being harvested on Highway 20. She hopes her viewers will feel that the landscape is familiar in that it depicts a specific time and place but also that the painting shows something previously unforeseen, as if coming upon the scene by chance.

Another gallery artist, Tamera Abate, will display her encaustic painting “Provencal Harvest,” which is based on memories of time spent in Provence at the height of the lavender harvest season.”

The gallery is at 237 Riverside Ave. and is open daily from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. through September; beginning in October the gallery will be open Thursday through Monday. For information, call 996-3925; or visit
