The Josephy Center is excited to present a new exhibit, Who’s Your Buddy? on January 6 and ending February 22. The theme celebrates the relationship between human and that special animal, your companion - through art. Artists submitted works that range from special portraits of their special buddy through a variety of mediums: photography, painting, clay and wood.
This exhibit features 32 local and out of town artists including Ellen Morris Bishop, Jennifer Hawkins-Connolly, Ed Pitts, Aimee Jungmann and, 11 artists are students from the Joseph Charter School: Claire Webb, Abigail Dundas, Mary Hellinger, Marley Hutchins, Kallie Michaelson, Rylee Meyers and Myka Rowden and more. Art varies from photographs, painting and drawing, ceramics, and writing.
Due to COVID-19, we will not have a reception but will have a Brown Bag (date to be announced), a People’s Choice award (in-person and online) and a virtual slide show on our website. Visitors can enjoy the show in-person but masks are required.
Curator René Fleming remarked “I really wanted to highlight the special companions in our lives through an art exhibit at the Josephy Center. Whether it’s a horse, a cat, a hamster or a dog…these animals provide a connection that enriches our lives, no matter what age we are.”
