The exhibit compels the viewer to unravel the mystery and intrigue within each piece. The exhibit will be in the Jane Sandelin Gallery. Learn more about the artist at: www.k-cross-artitst.com

Au Naturale by Diane Balister -Amazed by nature, the artist enjoys painting en plein air - feeling the sun warm on her skin or feeling a soft breeze.  Attempting to paint water so that the viewer can hear the water move over rocks or sand,  or capturing children running and laughing, or animals chasing or barking.  Those things that make one pause and smile.  Often there are figures or animals in her landscapes and street scenes.  The beauty of the human body as it moves and flows is, perhaps, the ultimate beauty. A special tribute to her model Elizabeth who shared her beauty and graceful movements so that she could learn to appreciate true beauty. This Exhibit will be in the Centre Gallery East.


The Art of the Flower
by Emma Lou Martin - In this exhibit Emma Lou Martin incorporates painting and college. The subject matter will bring a welcome respite from winter to the gallery. Emma Lou Martin has devoted herself to enriching the art community of Richmond, Virginia with her involvement with the Uptown Gallery, her roles as a museum docent, workshop painting teacher, art consultant, and exhibitor. The exhibit will be in the Centre Gallery, West.

Moods and Perceptions by Julie Burleigh - This Exhibit will be in the Corner Gallery.

The Bridge by Minh-Chau Truong - Bridges are always a fascinating subject for Minh-Chau with their forms, heights, locations, materials, history. Through her photographs, paintings and hand built vases, Minh-Chau will share with you her interpretation of some of these works of "functional art" designed by the engineers in the field. This Exhibit will be in the Skylight Gallery.
