Cook, Suzy An­nick, Jim Russi, Mary Beth, Trey Sur­tees, Steven Smeltzer, Kim McDon­ald, Kyle Good­win, Mark Don­nelly, David Parvin, Lori Wylie and Mark Rem­ling.

“The grand open­ing of the gallery will be great,” he said. “We have a dozen truly world-class artists show­cas­ing their works.”

“They’re an eclec­tic se­lec­tion of artists,” added art con- sul­tant Al­li­son Muse. “It’s a re­ally nice mix of medi­ums too, and the artists will be on hand for a meet-and-greet.”

Live mu­sic, pu­pus and drinks also will be pro­vided.

Styles range from tra­di­tional oil on can­vas to high-tech metal paint­ings, surf pho­tos to ce­ram­ics, bronze sculp­ture to carved glass. thomadro’s lat­est creative de­vel­op­ment, the il­lu­minARTi so­ci­ety paint­ings, will be on view as well.

“I paint in lay­ers to build a three-di­men­sional look,” he ex­plained, not­ing that th­ese works — us­ing resins, acrylics, metal­lic and photo-lu­mi­nes­cent chem­i­cals to cre­ate unique vi­su­als on can­vas— are a first in the art world.“I fo­cus on the pos­i­tive, us­ing bright pal­ettes with a bright out­look.”

The gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. For more in­for­ma­tion, call 637-8010.
