New Exhibits "Bytes and Pieces"
Well-known Richmond artist Emma Lou Martin treats us with a subject we confront daily: technology, which she transforms into art.

This series of collages uses bits and pieces of computers as a unifying element. A variety of other substances are employed, such as papers, antique keys, coins, Civil War objects and discards from the streets which evoke the past, and reminds us of that which preceded our 21st century technological wonders. The result is unique 3-D images which create unexpected and sometimes humorous surprises (Through April 25th)

"New Guest Artist"
Featuring oils by Kay Shuster. Her charming paintings of animals, birds and children offer a wonderful counterpoint to Mrs. Martin's technologically-themed pieces. The two exhibits complement each other nicely. Come in and take it all in (Through April 25th)

The opening reception will be on Friday March 6th from 5 to 9 p.m. Show runs through April 25th.
