The River Gallery February exhibit, Southern Spirit, features artists who have southern ties that concentrate on the ephemeral essence of nature and memory.
There will be an opening reception with the artists on Friday, feb. 7, from 6:30-8 p.m. The snow date is Saturday, Feb. 8, from 2-4 p.m.
Review for the artists:
James Conner of Alabama captures an instance in time that evokes a sense of recollection or a returning to one's roots. With his sustainable baskets, Matt Tommey of North Carolina, nterlaces the complementary elements of the organic with the sculptural. Barbara Odil, of Georgia, has figurative work akin to a totem used by indigenous people to conjure respect for the natural world, walking through a wood and discovering something from the past.
Events are free and open to the public.
