The July exhibit at River Gallery will be Natural Collections with artists Dan Essig of North Carolina, Vicki Essig of North Carolina and Kelly Jean Ohl on Minnesota.
There will be an opening reception with the artists Friday, July 5, from 6:30-8 p.m. at 400 E. Second St.
The July exhibiting artists incorporate collections from home, nature, and personal history to create their unique works.
In her ceramic sculptures, Ms. Ohl explores texture through her use of familiar household tools and kitchen utensils.
Ms. Essig uses weaving and found objects to show the contrast between the fragile and the strong in her translucent works.
Using objects he has collected since childhood, Mr. Essig creates mixed-media book structures using fourth-century binding techniques incorporating woods, handmade paper, fossils, and mica.
The event is free and open to the public.
