Exhibiting the works of Mary Jo Kattleman and Cherie Sampson.
Regional artists, Mary Jo Kattelman and Cherie Sampson each have unique approaches in their work involving imagery and materials from nature, yet they share similar themes that explore and emulate the life cycles of the natural world.  Mary Jo works with natural and found materials in collage and assemblage; Cherie works in the environment creating in-situ performance, video and sculpture that are later montaged and presented through digital media.
