Gallery Main Street opens H20 Exhibit Saturday with reception

TYLER, July 11, 2013-- Gallery Main Street will open its newest exhibit Saturday, July 13, with a reception at 110 W. Erwin St., from 5:30 to 8 p.m.

The new exhibit, “H20,” features 33 works of art by 18 different artists.

“The title of H20 generated many different interpretations of the theme,” said Beverly Abell, City of Tyler Main Street Department leader. “We have very literal interpretations in oil and acrylic as well as very abstract interpretations. The exhibit also includes a sculpture utilizing chains to represent running water.”

H2O will remain in the gallery through Monday, Aug. 19. Admission is free. Gallery hours are Monday through Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Thursday and Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Saturday, noon to 4 p.m.

Gallery Main Street offers the public new juried exhibits approximately every six weeks. Artists submit up to three digital images of their work that are judged on an anonymous basis by a jury of professional artists. The top-scoring pieces are selected for inclusion in the exhibit. The piece that gets the highest score is named Best in Show.

Detailed information on how to enter future exhibits can be found at www.DowntownTylerArts.com.

Gallery Main Street is managed by the City of Tyler Main Street Department in conjunction with the volunteers of Heart of Tyler and the Downtown Tyler Arts Coalition.
