A Penny For Your Thoughts Gallery Show

A Penny For Your Thoughts can be viewed as both a tribute to artist/instructor Mary Wood and a continuing conversation between teacher and students. Using Mary's teachings and her final paintings as jumping off points, the group show consists of works that reference loss and remembrance, gratitude and grief. The show spans the wide range of media and styles embraced by Wood and the work she inspired in her students.

The artists in Seven Pennies: The Group are Catherine Cadieux, Charlene Codner, Darlene Hassall, Emilia Perri, Andrea Trace, Dorothy Visentin and Debra Wilde.

The opinion common to most of their acquaintances is that the memories will generate a few guitar-driven folk songs, and perhaps a painting or two. From two such cynics, if the affaire yields even one love song, it's gravy.
