A downtown art gallery is opening a new show.

The Gallery Q Artists Cooperative will hold a free public reception on Friday, Jan. 13, from 5-7 p.m. Special guests include feature Q artists Mary Therese Murphy, Mary Lee Reineking, Erin Prais-Hintz, and Vicky Helms.

“Their whimsical and wondrous silk fusion works, mixed media paintings, mosaics, collage paintings, jewelry, scarves, cards, and sculptures will be on display,” a news release from the gallery reads in part.

According to Q artist Mary Lee Reineking, the new exhibit is, “chock full of new artwork that’s sure to bring a smile to your face.”

In addition to the four featured Q artists, the work of more than 20 local and regional artists will also be located throughout the gallery.

The exhibition continues through March 3.

Artist Cooperative Gallery Q is owned and run by a cooperative of local artists. Its purpose is to support a vibrant community of fine artists, provide an opportunity to exhibit and sell regional fine art under a juried system, enhance professional development among artists, and benefit the community.
