The works of a Lynn artist – and former Lynn News columnist – have been chosen for a solo exhibition at a New York gallery, which is set to open this November.

Stanley Peach will have a range of works exploring the theme and the title of the exhibition – The Kaleidoscope of the Mind – displayed at the Agora Gallery, in Chelsea, for three weeks.

The artist was previously a contributor for our That’s Entertainment column.

The expressionistic paintings and drawings of Stanley Peach focus both on landscape and on various aspects of the human form, including abstract figures, portraiture, and social studies.

Mr Peach said his art explores “the way they look, the stories that at a glance can tell, the shape and form of the body, the abstract nature of shadows over the undefined muscles.”

Gallery assistant Olga Ku said: “Working mainly in oil and charcoal, Peach combines subdued colours and soft lines with compelling compositions to create images that speak to particular moments in time and to the depth of emotion that underlies all human existence.

“At the heart of Peach’s work is a keen eye for detail and a fascination with people, relationships and modern social issues.”

She added: “For Peach, the human form is so much more than a figurative rendering. It represents childhood memories, emotions, and inspired and past events.”

The exhibition is due to open on Tuesday, November 4, and will run until Tuesday, November 25, with the official opening taking place on Thursday, November 6.

The Agora Gallery, founded in 1984, is famous for showcasing a spectacular array of talented artists from around the world and around the corner, and for providing quality and original art to a discerning collector base.

The late Miki Stiles wanted to provide an opportunity to artists entering the New York art market after struggles while attempting to exhibit her own art. Find out more at
