The Thomas Gallery will present the Oil Paintings, Watercolors & Drawings group showings at its gallery on 107 N. College Ave. next month. The opening reception is 5 to 8 p.m. on Friday, March 2, and will be open every Friday until March 30. The exhibit will also be available by appointment.

The gallery will display the work of 16 artists in a variety of mediums. Leanne Ellis will present “The Blues,” a work of dyed clay.

Elizabeth Busey’s “On the Far Side of Forever” is a linocut, a design carved in relief on linoleum.

“What would the world look like to a hawk it were soaring over a topographically inspired landscape?” Busey said on her website.

Other artists, such as Joanne Shank, use acrylic paint to create her abstract work such as the piece, “Gaia.”

“With careful manipulation, sometimes only using my hands, I allow the paint to pool and flow creating the natural abstractions,” she said on her website. “Frequently I find some of the most exciting areas to be rather small, so photograph and enlarge the area creating new compositions.”
