The annual members show opens at the Whitewater Valley Arts Association gallery downtown.

Curtis Potters believes the members enjoy getting to see their works and those of the other members in the gallery. The show has been held annually for several years.

Twenty-four artists chose to display 48 works including photography, fiber, 3D, pottery, pen and ink and paint media.

Three works by founding member Don MacDaniel, who died in February, are in the show. For his works on display, he used watercolors, pen and ink and acrylic or oil, Potters said. One of them, an oil or acrylic painting of St. Augustine, Fla., he painted in 1959, before the Arts Association formed in 1962. 

WVAA President Sharon McQueen pointed to her photograph of Chianti grapes taken on her trip to Tuscany, Italy. It is one of two photographs in the show.

Potters has three paintings in the show.

“I usually think of ideas halfway between sleep and awake,” he said. “I really like the members show because you never know what you’re going to get.”

The show opens tonight at 402 Central Ave. It will continue for all of July.

The August show is called “Putting on the Fritz,” featuring works by the late Fritz Conwell, a locally famous artists who made a living painting for businesses and selling works. People who own his paintings are invited to show them in the gallery.
