Room 2 houses a mixed bag of local artists such as Christopher Engel, Fred Woller, and Jose Acosta, all of whom have had one-man shows at the gal­lery. Also in Room 2 are paintings by Marty Carey, who has work in collections at the Whitney Museum and other venues. Of note, Marty Carey was asked to create a poster for the first Earth Day in 1970, which led to the creation of the EPA, Clean Air, Clean Water and Endangered Species Acts. His memorable poster, pictured above, features bright fish above stylized eyes.
Room 3 contains dimensional art and paintings by muralist Alfredo Santos. Zoom Gallery has represented this artist for several years and continues to collect, exhibit and sell the work of this former Fleischmanns resident.
Zoom Gallery is located at 1164 Main Street and is open Thursday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call 254-4998 for further information.
