Spring art exhibitions will be on display at the Quinlan Visual Arts Center in Gainesville through June 9, offering a variety of works from six artists.

Pieces featured will include Bruce and Bryna Bobick’s “The Carrolton-Memphis Connection;” “Off the Wall” sculpture by Betty Beasley’ “Reflections,” recent work of Ron Pircio; “Across Many Waters” landscapes and abstracts by Sandra Landergott; and contemporary Atlanta artist Onyeka Ibe “Structure and Forms III.”

The exhibition will continue through June 9 during the center’s regular visitor hours.

“The Carrolton-Memphis Connection” is a father-daughter exhibition. Father Bruce Bobick’s work has won 78 awards and been included in hundreds of juried, solo and invitational exhibitions worldwide.

His daughter, Bryna, earned a BFA and Doctorate of Education in Art Education from the University of Georgia and currently is assistant professor of Art Education at The University of Memphis.

New York-based Nigerian artist Ibe has achieved international recognition for his dramatic approach to painting. He first achieved success at age 16 when he first exhibited at the National Gallery of Modern Art in Lagos, Nigeria.

“Reflections” by Pircio is a landscape series that displays the artist’s versatility in oils. Landergott is an award-winning artist and active member of the Georgia Art League and member, exhibitor and volunteer at the Quinlan.

Currently working in oils, she is proficient in watercolor, pastel and encaustics.

Beasley’s sculptures have earned her a reputation for her fine work and most recently won Best of Show at the Georgia Marble Festival and also received the People’s Choice award.
