"Harmonies and Counterpoints"

July brings “Harmonies and Counterpoints” an art show featuring Rhoda Winters’ unique interpretation of realism. “I have always been fascinated by the influence of color, the way that natural patterns interact with each other, and the differences between what the eyes see and what the mind remembers. While I love realistic colors, brighter colors help me explore the harmonies and counterpoints created as plants, sky and land interact.”
Exhibit continues through the month of July. Gallery hours are Tues.-Fri. 10-5, Sat. 9:30-1:30.
