QUINCY — The John Wood Community College Heath Center art gallery will be the site of the Quincy Artists Guild’s art show, beginning at 5 p.m. Tuesday with an opening reception to view artwork and meet the artists. Handmade greeting cards will be available for purchase during the reception. Visitors also will learn about the group and how to become a member.
The group will have more than 10 artists displaying paintings in watercolor, oil, and pastels. Some pieces will be for sale. The gallery is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to noon Friday. The show is open through Nov. 19. Exhibits are free and open to the public. Masks must be worn on campus.
The Quincy Artists Guild welcomes new members to share their love of painting, sketching, print making, ceramics, jewelry and more. The guild meets weekly at 9 a.m. Monday in the Cheryl Loatsch Studio, 334 S. 48th., to create artwork and share and learn new techniques. Membership is $20 a year. The group hosts one or two demonstrations a month (by members and occasionally by an art professional) and takes a yearly trip by Amtrak to the Art Institute in Chicago. The group also visits museums and galleries. Members have exhibited their artwork in the Art Center’s annual members’ exhibit and Mary S. Oakley-Lee Lindsay Artist Showcase.
