A collection of works by area artists begins the 2013-2014 exhibition schedule in the Dorris Rider Art Gallery at North Central Missouri College in Trenton. “Local Artists Showcase 6” is now open and will be on display through October 4.
The show features 42 artworks created by 24 different artists from Trenton and the surrounding area. Viewers can expect to see traditional materials such as oil paint, acrylics, photography, and drawing. On the other hand, this exhibit also includes unique landscapes created from cloth and mixed media pieces constructed from women’s shoes.
“I love this show more and more every year,” said Gallery Director Jim Norris. “It never ceases to amaze me what great talent there is in our area. I truly believe that this year’s show is the very best we’ve ever had featuring local artists.”
“Local Artists Showcase 6” will run from August 28 through October 4. The gallery is located in the Frey Administrative Building, and all NCMC students and members of the public are invited to visit the exhibit.
Regular hours at the Rider Art Gallery are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, as well as selected weekend and evening hours by appointment. For more information, please contact Jim Norris at 359-3948 ext. 1345 at NCMC.
