Up Art and Design Gallery is the home gallery and studio of nationally known artist John Carroll Long. His work is in quite a few museums and private galleries. His openings draw a standing room crowd for both his art, and the exhibited art of other quite talented artists. If you line up five of his pieces, you'd swear they were by five different artists! There's a whimsy to many sculptures, and a seriousness to some, with a good sprinkling of double entendres and "found art" that will have you going back for another and yet another look at a painting, or at sculptures that range from 3 inches to to 13 feet tall.
And, he's a very funny and incisive cartoonist. Stop by and pick up some cartoon cards.
Here are some of Mr. Long's creations.
