Gallery Main Street opens new 'Time' exhibit Saturday

TYLER, August 21, 2013--A time themed art exhibit will open Saturday, Aug. 24, at Gallery Main Street, 110 W. Erwin St., in downtown Tyler.

The public is invited to a free reception in honor of the artists and the exhibit from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the gallery. Food, beverages and live music will be featured, along with the art.

“The new exhibit features more than 20 works of art by 13 area artists,” said Beverly Abell, department leader for the City of Tyler Main Street department. “Mediums for the pieces range from acrylic to photography, sculpture, watercolor and others.”

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.
