THE LURE OF THE FISH

There are so many ways to approach the subject of this exhibition. One way could be to focus on lures that are used to catch fish. They can be art works in themselves and are carefully created to catch “the big one.” This exhibition will concentrate on what “lures” artists to portray the fish. Is it a love affair with the wonders of the fish? Is it the structure, design and color of the fish? Come and see the exhibition to decide for yourself!

Artists in the exhibition include: Roberta Anslow, Jill Bates, Howard Bonington, Shelley Fenily, Taylor Fox, Ziegmont Guzkowski, Denny Howard, Kevin King, Carl Lopes, Tessa Morgan, Kimberly duCharme Nickerson, Jean Marie O’Clair, Paul Schulenburg, Susan Simon, Goeff Semonian and Gail Turner.
