Cross Rip Gallery Sign TO PRINT.jpg


The name  Cross Rip Gallery was chosen by artist/owner Georgene Riedl not only to recognize its location in Harwich Port on Nantucket Sound  and the legendary “rips” found in its waters, but also to symbolize many different currents of art meeting in one place to create an exciting and ever-changing  medium  of artistic expression. Situated in an 1830’s Cape, Cross Rip Gallery features contemporary abstract and figurative fine art by award-winning and emerging artists .  The gallery specializes in “art with an edge”, so that visitors  know when they step inside that  they will be rewarded  with dynamic, imaginative and innovative work with fresh perspectives.   Cross Rip Gallery is not only set-up “Gallery style”, but sculpture, paintings, photography, reliefs, watercolors, and collages are also displayed in a residential setting so that collectors can easily visualize how a work of art would look in a home setting with natural lighting.  There is ample and convenient parking available with many restaurants and shops a stroll away.  


Throughout the season Cross Rip Gallery hosts a series of events for the art-loving public: indoor and outdoor exhibit  openings with refreshments and music  as well as  Art Salons, book signings and demonstrations.  Currently showing the work of Sculptors Heather Blume, Sally S. Fine, Ralph MacKenzie, and Richard Perry; Painters Suzanne Packer, Liz Perry , Georgene Riedl, Kate Nelson,Hollis Fortune, Dianne Longchamps, Jan Lhormer, Alla Zbinovsky, Ellen Davies, John Howard, Martha Holden, Tom Wilson Jones and Eveline Luppi ; photographers Jim Cahoon and John Moore; and assemblages by Leah McCormick..
