Wild Life Exhibit opens at View

An opening reception for the new exhibit, “The Wild Life,” will be held on Friday, Dec. 7, from 5 to 7 pm. The reception is open to the public and will have music, light fare, and libations. Antlers, tails, furs, and any wild apparel is encouraged! 

"The Wild Life" is an exhibit of artwork that puts our “wild” neighbors front and center. Animals are the focus of all the work on display. Here’s a quick overview of what you will see: Wildlife photographs by acclaimed photographer Eric Dresser, watercolor paintings of animals and nature by Jeanette Fournier, oils and watercolors by JC Parker, paintings by avid outdoorsman Bob Ripley, paintings and sculpture by Tricia Zimic, and hunting weaponry by Dan Landis, Pa., Roy Painter, Pa., John Scifres, Ind., Charles Sinclair, Texas, and Joseph Weed, Ohio.

The exhibit will be on display through April 28, 2013.

Concurrent exhibits include photographs by Don Andrews from Dec. 8 to April 28; “The Artventures of Tom Yacovella” from Dec. 8 to Jan. 13; paintings and sculptures by Michael Ringer from Jan. 19 to Feb. 24, and paintings by William Wiatr from March 2 to April 21.

And there’s more.

Tricia Zimic will give a talk on Dec. 8 at 10 am in the gallery and she will answer questions about her powerful images.
