Visiting Artists and Artists' Favorites

                  Featuring The Mill at Shady Lea Artists



A radiant disk glows in a quiet room. A softly textured ceramic and fiber sculpture invites interpretation. While loose brushstrokes dazzling with color illuminates an autumn landscape. From the mysterious to the whimsical to the uplifting, a variety of work by visiting artists from the Mill at Shady Lea will seduce visitors this month at the Artists’ Cooperative Gallery of Westerly. Art lovers are invited to come see, and meet the artists, at the show’s Opening Reception, Friday, February 3 from 5-8 PM.

 Featured artists for the annual visiting artist show include photographer Barbara Crane, oil painters Trish Hurley and Christopher Terry, stone sculptor Elizabeth Lind, multi-media artist Susan Matthews and ceramic artists Donna Thompson and Sue Greene.  Work on display reflects a wide range of artistic philosophies, forms and expression and ranges from abstract, landscape, and still life painting to drawing, sculpture, multimedia and photography.  Click here for more information on Shady Lea Artists .
