The Art Wall will premiere the group exhibit, Altars, Amulets and Shrines, curated by Gay Schempp. This exhibit expresses eight artists’ exploration of personal altars, amulets or shrines used to create external representations of interior mysteries, memories or links between people, between things and between realms. The works range in a variety of disciplines and materials including sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, encaustic, assemblage and jewelry. Featured in the exhibit are works by Mary Lou Alberetti, Lori Barker, Suzanne Benton, Robert Dansik, George Herrick, Barbara Jaroch, Gay Schempp, and Diane Wright. A reception with refreshments for the artists will be held from 5pm to 7pm on Friday, August 25. This event is free and open to the public. The exhibit will be on display through Friday, September 22.
