Spring art show to feature Williams

Ruth Williams

Ruth Williams will be one of several artists featured in an upcoming spring art show, which is being sponsored by members of the Corry Artists’ Guild.

The show is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Smith Education Center. A special needs hour will be held on Saturday from noon to 1 p.m.

This year’s theme is “Brushes of Spring.”

Williams is a charter member of the Artists’ Guild. She joined at the club’s inception in 1997.

She considers creating art a “marvelous hobby.”

As early as fifth grade, Williams remembers drawing in school.

She feels that the art experience has opened many vistas to her. Williams has traveled throughout Europe, and has visited many museums and viewed several famous artworks.

In addition to Williams, 21 other guild members will have their work displayed at the upcoming show.

Many of those pieces will be for sale.

Once again this year there will be a “Fabulous Fakes” auction. The fakes are reproductions of famous artworks that have been painted by guild members.

These pieces will be auctioned through silent bidding.

The art show is free and open to the public.
