Art in The Shoppe: Four Art: Nevertheless They Persisted

As four friends settle into retirement and explore new personal frontiers, they’ve realized this major life change also brings limitless opportunity for reflection and self-discovery through the arts.  Former college counselors Cheryl Long and Chris Lozier have pursued their passions in painting and ceramics. Long will showcase her new mixed media series “Flowers Picking Themselves” and more of her “Buddha” paintings. Lozier is studying the unique qualities of micaceous (mica) clay, especially as used in Southwestern Native American culture. He will exhibit functional table sculpture, fire-ware and clocks. Retired high school art teacher Bruce Nufer, who has discovered a satisfying niche restoring religious art, will show before and after examples of his work, and journalist Kathy Walsh Nufer has written about the intergenerational links in her family's activist spirit, from her Suffragette grandmother to her own experiences as part of the historic Women's March.

Exhibit from July 2 - August 12
Opening reception on July 2, 2-5 pm
