Their work creates a connection with the viewer through form, subject matter, and color choices and reflects an image greater than the sum of its parts. In addition to being professional studio artists, they are also educators who regularly share their skills and experience with students through Metro Parks Visual Arts classes and workshops.

Perceptions opens with an artists’ reception on July 15 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and will be on display July 11 to 28, 2022.
