Ricky Gagnon interviewed on Talent Time

Greetings gallery goers. Just this past January, gallery director Ricky Gagnon was interviewed about his own work and the often organic process of making his paintings. Wonderful insights in the working habits and thoughts behind the work and his studio life. It is interesting to hear the details of his current series and how his fellow art colleagues are adding a nice twist to his already colorful work. 
Also, Ricky goes into and details the brief history of the gallery and how much it reaches out to the local community as well as the residents of the training school. 
Along with a small group of volunters, Ricky has helped the gallery grow and it remains an exciting project and we look ahead into the fifth year of New Hope Art Gallery! So please lend your ears and eyes on this video segment and as always...thanks for your support!
