Illuminance, a national competitive biennial exhibition featuring photographic work from across the nation focuses on the theme, “The Feeling of Rural Night,” set by this year’s juror, Rixon Reed. Reed is the owner of photo-eye Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Illuminance will be on display in the Fine Arts Gallery. The new exhibition, John Franklin: The Natural Beauty of Wood, will be on display in the Foyer Gallery. In this exhibition, woodworking artist John Franklin displays his latest creations fashioned from a variety of woods. Franklin uses a lathe to transform wood into functional and sculptural forms, with the goal of maximizing the natural grain and inherent beauty of each type of wood.
There will be Country Night Scenes, an oil pastels interactive activity for all ages, in the Interactive Space.
