NORWAY – “Three,” an exhibit of work by three artists familiar to Oxford Hills – Debra Wentworth, Nikki Millonzi and Don Best, runs through the month of October at the Fare Share Commons.

The artists, all members of the Commons Art Collective since its inception in 2001, work in three media: film, wood and paint.

Wentworth, a photographer, works in both black and white and color and with traditional and alternative processes. Rather than go digital, she continues to use film and to explore old-fashioned methods and materials.

Best is once again exploring his world with his favorite medium, wood. A small carving of a snake on a skateboard was inspired by his 3-year-old grandson. A 6-foot-plus carving of a man with his dog standing under a flock of black birds is a tribute to his dog, which died of cancer. Another is a dancing couple on rockers, an expression of the give-and-take nature of relationships.

Millonzi, a painter, explores color, textures and how they dovetail with her inspirations – her grandson, dreams, hot-air balloons and flowers in her garden.

Fare Share Commons is at 445 Main St. The gallery is open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and is accessible other times through the Fare Share Market.
