New exhibit to start in Glen Building next week

Glen Helen Atrium Gallery Exhibition:
Close to Home: Paintings and Prints by Pat Robinow and Sherraid Scott
June 2 through 29, 2011

Glen Helen Atrium Gallery is showing Close to Home: Paintings and Prints by Pat Robinow and Sherraid Scott, from June 2 - 29, 2011. Robinow and Scott regularly paint outdoors and this exhibition opens a wide lens on our local landscape. The public is invited to meet the artists at the opening reception on Sunday June 5, from 2 - 4 pm. At 3 pm Scott will do a wood block demonstration and will also show some of her etching plates.

Robinow paints in oils and works from direct observation in the traditional genres of landscape and still life. She says, "What motivates my work is the richness of the immediate environment, taking the time to really look."

Scott makes prints using woodblock, lithography and etching techniques and is a member of the Dayton Printmakers' Cooperative. In addition, she paints using watercolors. Scott lived in Japan for twenty years and has exhibited her work in Japan as well as in the United States.

The Gallery is located in the Glen Helen Building at 405 Corry Street in Yellow Springs. Show hours are 9:30 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday and 10 am to 4 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Admission is free. Artwork will be available for purchase with proceeds supporting the Glen Helen Nature Preserve.

The Glen Helen Atrium Gallery showcases the work of emerging local and regional visual artists in twelve exhibits each year. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of art goes to the Glen Helen Association, a non-profit organization whose mission is to support preservation and programs at Glen Helen and its 1,000-acre nature preserve.
