Journeys will be the featured exhibit at River Gallery during September. The exhibit features works by Betty MacDonald of Virginia and Mitch Yung of Missouri.
The September exhibiting artists explore internal and external journeys in their prints and sculptures. Placing nature out of context with its surroundings, Ms. MacDonald invites people into allegorical dreamscapes as she creates her etchings, monotypes, and aquatints. Mr. Yung
invites the viewer into his world of travel and collecting while creating carved wood heads based on fertility figures from ancient cultures. Wall mosaics share his journeys through assembling found objects and constructing three dimensional collages.
There will be an opening reception with the artists on Saturday, Sept. 7, from 6:30-8 p.m. in conjunction with the Downtown Gallery Hop.
River Gallery is at 400 E. Second St. The event is free and open to the public.
