Gallery 50 hosts opening reception for new exhibit on May 5

Gallery 50 hosts an opening reception for a new art exhibit, “SPECTRUM: Realism to Abstraction,” on Friday, May 5 from 5:30–8 p.m. at 50 West Main Street in downtown Waynesboro. The evening will showcase the new artwork and include free refreshments in addition to live music from The Flying Matlocks in the adjacent Music Makers space.

The 12 featured artists are Cindy Baker, Peg Belcastro, Anne Finucane, David Henry, Melissa Hook, Katrina Hoopes, Kate Keely, Melissa Libertini, Sandra Schuster, Andrew Small, Jennifer Small, and Gallery 50 curator Marti Yeager.

“We’re very much looking forward to showing this ‘spectrum’ of artwork—paintings, collages, and drawings,” Yeager said. “The 12 featured artists’ works cover a wide range in style, from realism to abstraction.”

The gallery will also have new fine art and crafts by local artists available on the shelves, including pottery, wood carvings, jewelry, stained glass art, and more.

Following the reception, the exhibit will be on display through the end of July. Gallery 50 is open on Fridays from 5–8 p.m., Saturdays from 11:30 a.m.–2:30 p.m., and by appointment. In addition, the full exhibit will soon be available to browse and purchase on the gallery’s online shop at

Gallery 50 is owned and operated by the Arts Alliance of Greater Waynesboro and spotlights fine art and high-quality crafts from local artists and artisans.
