June Landscape Exhibit

Moonrise on a Lake by Laura Hopkins; Oil

For our annual Landscape Exhibit we invited League artists to submit works that capture a sense of place. Stop by to soak in the diverse and interesting mix of scapes—pastoral scenes, urban vistas, and maritime views. This year’s exhibit comprises 100 artworks, including acrylic and oil paintings, printmaking, ink and pencil drawings, glass sculpture, tile mosaic, quilt-making, mixed media, and photography. It was juried by Frederick Mershimer, a New York-based artist specializing in mezzotint printmaking who celebrates the experience of the city in his works.  The Landscape Exhibit is on view through July 9.

 

 

Dimensions Sculpture Exhibit

Rise Up by George Elliott

Dimensions showcases three dimensional work from a variety of media including ceramic, stone, wood, glass, metal, mixed media and beyond. This year’s exhibit features 18 works by League member artists. It was juried by noted wood sculptor Jim Perry, and is on view through July 9.

 

 

Into the Wilderness by Kim A. Richards

Into the Light by Kim A. Richards; Acrylic

Kim A. Richards’ solo exhibit, Into the Wildernesspresents a body of work rich in biblical and allegorical references. Painted in oil and acrylic, her work focuses on the sense of hope and encouragement that defies the feelings of fear, hurt, and discontent experienced throughout the “wilderness journey” of life. Richards hopes her exhibit will “strike a spiritual chord of God’s unconditional love with her viewers.”
