In recognition of International Women's Month and International Women's Day, In-Town Gallery's featured March exhibit will be "WomanART.'
Displaying artwork by female members of the gallery, this show presents fine art and fine craft in numerous media. The new exhibit opens to the public on Friday, March 6, with a reception from 5 to 8 p.m. at the gallery, 26-A Frazier Ave.
"The range and quality of the fine art and fine craft that our women create is truly impressive," says Carol Ott, president of In-Town Gallery.
"In many ways, it stands in defiance to a time when women were not encouraged to be professional artists and artisans. In-Town Gallery has 16 female members working in media such as painting, sculpture, jewelry, pottery and fused glass. It's an honor for us to join in an international celebration of the many achievements of women with a show like this."
Among the paintings in the exhibit are "Landscape II" by Ellyn Bivin, "Four Afghan Women" by Miki Boni, "Optimism" by Jennie Kirkpatrick, "Unbound" by Janice Kindred and "Pink: Tribute to Helen Frankenthaler" by Julie Turner.
Equally interesting is a beautifully rendered drawing by Gay Arthur, "Nude in Repose." Other painters with work on display are Helen Brooks, Lee Glascock, Nadine Koski and Lori Ryan.
The show offers fabric art by Jan Lamoreaux, sculpture by Denice Bizot, pottery by Laurie Graham, jewelry by Eleanor Goodson, Barbara Murnan and Carol Ott, and fused glass by Mary Beth McClure.
The exhibit will remain up throughout the month of March. Gallery hours are 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Saturday, 1-5 p.m. Sunday.
