In-Town Gallery '21 Fun Salute Exhibit Is On Display Through January

Tuesday, January 12, 2021

In-Town Gallery has a new show, ‘21 Fun Salute!, which will be on display through Jan. 31. Featuring the artwork of Gay Arthur, Miki Boni, Bill Johnson, Jennie Kirkpatrick, Doug McCoy and Lori Ryan, the salute to 2021 offers "bright colors, optimism and a much needed sense of fun".

Review for '21 Fun Salute: 

The ‘21 Fun Salute show is presented to chase away the winter blues. To mention just three works, we have Miki Boni’s Chrometric, a stunning evocation of joy and freedom, built as the title suggests, around bold and brilliant colors. Jennie Kirkpatrick’s watercolor, Solar Eclipse, is angular, complex and equally colorful. Tech Tree is characteristic of much of Doug McCoy’s artwork, combining pen drawing, color, and filled with hundreds of small human figures and lots of fun. Doug’s sense of humor is always at play in all his creations. 

In-Town Gallery has paintings, pottery, jewelry, photography, sculpture and fabric art to wear. It now has an online store offering a wide range of art and fine crafts. Visit www.intowngallery.com for more information.
