Discover the talents of David Stern in MSA’s gallery

Beginning Jan. 11, the artwork of David Stern will be on display in Main Street Art’s Gallery in an exhibit called “All Over the Map.”

A free artist’s reception will be held from 5:30–7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 14 at 35 Main St. in Saxtons River.

“All Over the Map” is Stern’s somewhat sardonic way of describing the breadth of his artistic interests and his world spanning travels that have influenced his artistic sensibilities. That breadth includes paintings, jewelry and sculpture.

The show will run through Feb. 22. For more information about the show, Stern or Main Street Arts call Margo Ghia at 802-869-2960, or visit
