·         RETURNING EXHIBIT: “People, Places and Things” Paintings and mixed media by Frank Mayes. “Out of wondrous joy and deep respect for the beauty, strength, poise, and the godly perfection of the human species, I present these studies and paintings for your thought, analysis and appreciation.

·         RETURNING EXHIBIT: “Caught in a Web” Watercolor paintings by Hannah Brown. Brown paints on Yupo paper, which is completely non-absorbent. “Because of its slick texture, paint tends to slide around on it inunexpected ways. I use a completely level surface and cover the paper with tightly stretched halloween spider webs.”
