They work in a variety of media, including found-object sculpture, oil painting, cast-bronze sculptures, jewelry, works on paper, serigraphs, murals, photography, theater, dance, bunraku puppetry, video, computer animation and music.

Entertainment, champagne and refreshments will be featured at Saturday’s reception. Classical guitarist Paul Russell and Celtica (flutist Walburga Ziegenhagen and keyboardist Nancy Burns Trice) will perform.

5th Ave. Gallery is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Other viewing hours are available by calling the gallery at 271-2222.
