Gallery 50 to host local art exhibit

Gallery 50 hosts an opening reception for a new art exhibit, “Faces and Places,” Nov. 5 from 5:30–8 p.m. at 50 West Main Street in downtown Waynesboro.

The reception showcasing the new artwork includes free refreshments, and live music from Drew Adams. The band will set up in the adjacent Music Makers space.

“We are thrilled to have the work of five talented artists gracing our walls beginning in November,” Gallery 50 curator Marti Yeager said. “We’ll also have plenty of new shelf art, including pottery; stained glass; jewelry; wood carvings; and other fine crafts that will make for perfect holiday gifts.”

The featured painters include Pam Wenger, Cindy Baker, Donna Barlup, Claire Carnell, and Warren Tracy Davis. The exhibit spotlights oil, acrylic, and watercolor paintings. Subjects range from portraits to landscapes to still life.

The CDC now advises wearing masks in public spaces indoors and outdoors when not able to socially distance. The gallery provides masks at the front desk.

Following the reception, the exhibit will be on display through mid-April. Gallery 50 is open on Fridays from 5–8 p.m., Saturdays from 11:30 a.m.–2:30 p.m., and by appointment.
