Members of the Civic Arts League of Chattanooga depict what "Hot Fun in the Summertime" means to them in a new art exhibit that opens with a reception Sunday, July 15, 2-4 p.m. in the North River Civic Center, located behind Northgate Mall at 1009 Executive Drive, Suite 102.

The exhibit's theme is interpreted by each artist in his or her preferred medium. Their work includes oils, acrylics, watercolors and mixed media, ranging from the abstract and whimsical to pieces reminiscent of impressionism and realism. All pieces are for sale and ready to hang.

Formed in the early 1960s, the Civic Arts League is a nonprofit organization consisting of multitalented artists and supporters of the arts. It is dedicated to the stimulation of creative art and the promotion of cultural and educational interests in Chattanooga and the surrounding tri-state area. It gives amateur, semiprofessional and professional artists an opportunity to exhibit and/or sell their work and to network, socialize and exchange ideas with other local artists.

Members meet the first Monday of every month (except July and major holidays), at 6 p.m. in Grace Episcopal Church, 20 Belvoir Ave. For more information: 423-277- 9464 or 423-653-8946.
