Hollingsworth, Rebecca Olson, Jayla Poe, J. Felton Powell, Ashley Redic, Korey Rowswell, Tara Sartorius, Ciera Simone, Mary Soylu, Toni Toney and Cleve Webber.

A free reception will be held at 6 p.m. on Nov. 10. Exhibits in the museum’s gallery are free for viewing during normal operating hours, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays.

“The River Region not only has a rich history of activism, but also of visual and performance art,” said Madeline Burkhardt, the museum’s Adult Education Coordinator and Curator of the exhibit. “Some of the world’s most well-known artists have hailed from this area. Our current exhibit highlights artists currently living in the River Region and their various styles, visions and media.”
