Please join the MSA board in welcoming the artist. Refreshments will be served. Parking is plentiful at the Newfields Town Hall.

James Sanner is an accomplished artist whose work reflects his appreciation of copper. The element is evident in his shadow boxes and copper painting assemblages. His pieces reflect a blue green (verde) patina which is the result of acid bath applications, and are either shaped into assemblages, or used in story telling shadow boxes. The result is a collection of unique art pieces, each of which stands on its own merits to convey the artist’s sense of the medium material.
The volunteers of Main Street Art believe that the arts are an essential component for the development and well-being of all people. The purpose of Main Street Art is to provide a place of education where children, teens, adults and seniors can come together to experience, appreciate and participate in the arts in an environment where creative efforts are shared and made accessible to everyone.
