visit the month-long exhibit by appointment:
On Friday, December 8, NCI ARTworks hosted an opening reception and Christmas market from 6 to 9pm at the NCI ARTworks gallery in the west wing of the historic Westclox building in Peru. ALL NCI ARTworks exhibits are FREE and open to the public.
The exhibition and market features the work of a variety of artists and craftspeople from throughout the tri-county area: Princeton-area artist Collette Yelm's elegant pour-art pottery is a delightful and unique take on the popular trend of art pours. Alice Tang Matthews offers not only her exquisite Chinese watercolor silk scroll but also canvas prints embellished with prints of her popular oil and acrylic work. Fabric artist Jacqueline Hughes, of the Jacqueline Joanne brand, presents a whimsical vignette of felted wool wall hangings and beautifully crafted throw pillows. Hand-harvested crystal jewelry pieces designed by Katie Goetz are available for purchase as is estate jewelry offered by Maria Cosgrove Drager. Acrylics, prints, and oil paintings by Pat Siebert, Francesco Messina, Lorena Malm, Larissa Sarver, and others are available for purchase as are sculptural wall hangings by Mark Dicosola. Work by nationally acclaimed, award-winning illustrator Judith Gosse is available as well.
