The Woman's Club of Semmes is hosting a reception for the artists whose works are on exhibit at the Semmesonian Art Space at Semmes Public Library, 9150 Moffett Road. The event is Thursday, February 4, 5:30-7 p.m.; the public is invited and encouraged to attend.
The gallery is filled with oil, watercolor and acrylic paintings, as well as photographs, sculpture and some very unusual art pieces.
In addition to art by Yuka Miller, Jaime Lee, Julie Andel, Sandra Pierce, Jeanette Byrd, Patricia Thing and Jeanette Franklin, there are beautiful birds, humming birds and flowers carved by Warren Gatwood. He also has some lovely turned-wood boxes on display.
Guests will find Albert Van Hoogmoed's lamps made from a discarded colander and a meat grinder intriguing--and very attractive. Sadie Fields' paper art includes a very different rendering of cameliaas; miniaturist Roxann Dyess'spieces include a tiny potting workshop and a shadow box filled with an array of little pots of flowers. Philippe Oszuscik has a display of intricately woven pine straw baskets.
Visitors to the reception and art exhibit will not be disappointed at the beauty and quality of art displayed this month at the Semmesonian.
