The show can also be seen during regular gallery hours: 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday through February 26.
The dramatic and colorful paintings of Cynthia Fraula Hahn immediately capture the eye of most visitors. Fraula Hahn, an adjunct professor at Shepherd University is also displaying work of charcoal on paper.
The lush glazes fired to high temperatures on clay vessels by Nancy Bishop of Berryville have proven very popular with visitors to the gallery.
