Local artists on display at Brenau exhibit
This painting by Alice Paris is among the works featured at an exhibit at Brenau University.

A mix of styles and life experiences come together in a new art exhibit opening this month at Brenau University.

Paintings by Gainesville artists Ann Alexander, Rosemary Dodd, Joyce Hornor and Alice Paris will be on display starting May 9, kicking off the President’s Summer Arts Series.

The exhibit takes place at the Sellars Gallery at the Simmons Visual Arts Center, 200 Boulevard, Gainesville. An opening reception will take place at 6 p.m. May 9 at the gallery, featuring a chance to meet the artists, and the show continues through May 31. Admission to the reception and the gallery is free and open to the public.

The four artists are all Gainesville residents and all bring a lifetime of experiences to their work.

Alexander, Hornor and Paris discovered their talent after their children left for college, while Dodd began drawing at age 3 and never stopped. Nevertheless, all four women have extensive training in both foundation and technique, and each brings a unique view of life, love and North Georgia living to the gallery’s walls.
