The exhibit includes the works of Jack Loeb of Smithville. Loeb is known for using bold colors and expressive brushstrokes to convey a sense of joy and excitement in his paintings. He is a retired educator with over 37 years of experience teaching elementary through college level art. 

Also featured are the works of Louis and Christine Colombrarini, who have worked together as ceramic artists for over 40 years and have successfully explored many avenues of clay technique.

“We are so excited to have this display,” said Paula Walker, WCTE development assistant. “The brilliant colors in Jack’s paintings and the texture and shapes of Louis and Christine’s ceramics are something to behold. I certainly hope everyone will take the opportunity to come and see this exhibit while it is here.” 

The artists will be in residence during the reception to meet and greet the public. Light refreshments will be provided.
