PLYMOUTH — Artistic Roots Cooperative Gallery in downtown Plymouth is pleased to host a reception for the newest artists in its Visiting Artist Program on Wednesday, June 4 from 5:30–7 p.m. to celebrate and enjoy the work of six participating artists. Refreshments will be served.

The collection will feature the pieces of Mollie Stark, Rustic Contemporary Artist; Tamara Mann, Ceramic Artist; Lisa Strang, Waterfowl Carver; Annette Mitchell, Printmaker/Painter; Maureen Bieniarz-Pond, Photography/Painting; and Gerri Harvey, Acrylics.

"We are so excited about each new rotation of Visiting Artists. This line-up is especially diverse and will offer customers a great opportunity to see even more great local creations. This program also gives all the participating artists inspiration to show their newest work and reach a fresh audience," according to Debbie Johnson, Coordinator of the Visiting Artist's Program for Artistic Roots.

Mollie Stark's Rustic Contemporary Art, reflects her deep appreciation of nature, particularly the quiet beauty of New England's many hidden spots. Her abstracts are done in many layers of inks and acrylics to build texture and allow underlying images to shine through. Ms. Stark of Campton, embraces a departure from the ordinary with the remarkable freedom and flow of her work, yet manages continuity in impressions.

The exhibition will run from June 1 through September 30. Artistic Roots offers only handmade local art and is operated by over 40 member artists. Artistic Roots is open daily from 10 to 6 and is located at 73 Main Street in downtown Plymouth. You can also visit their website at www.artistic
