PLYMOUTH — An enthusiastic group of art admirers gathered recently in downtown Plymouth to welcome the latest rotation of Visiting Artists in Artistic Roots new program. Guests were treated to meeting nearly all of the participants. Richard Wetterer, potter; Philip Parsons, lapidary; Wayne King, photographer, and Paulette Brace, printmaker, were all available to discuss the various aspects of their one of a kind creations.
Visitors were also able to tour the rest of the gallery and see the newest works available at the artist cooperative located at 73 Main Street in downtown Plymouth. "What a pleasure to approach the gallery on a winter evening and see it full of life, color, and visitors," expressed a juried member of Artistic Roots. "We are so pleased to have such talented artists join us for the four months of the show. Their work brings a variety to the wide assortment that we already offer."
Artistic Roots is a cooperative member-run gallery. "While membership isn't an option for some area artists, this new program allows us to temporarily include works of non-member artists. We are so happy with how the program is working for the gallery and our customers." reported Debbie Johnson, program coordinator.
Visitors also enjoyed a wide variety of finger foods, organized by Polly Bartlett, member-artist who specializes in weaving. The five current Visiting Artists will be displaying their work at Artistic Roots until May 31. Artistic Roots is open daily from 10-6 and also offers instructional art classes.
