Three new artists — Crystal Allen from Canton, Hank Shuler from Franklin and Janice Swanger from Waynesville — will now exhibit their work at The Mainstreet Artists’ Co-op.
Allen specializes in wheel-thrown and hand-built pottery. Shel draws inspiration from her forays into calligraphy and watercolor painting as well as nature. Visit with her at the gallery on Waynesville’s Evening of Art from 5-9 p.m. on June 1.
Shuler is a ceramicist who specializes in clay sculpture. She creates a variety of animals including foxes, bears, bobcats, hound dogs and cats. Shuler completed her master pottery certificate at Southwestern Community College, where she set up the heritage arts program. She will be at the gallery on May 30.
Swanger has been drawing and painting in colored pencil for more than 20 years. With this medium, she is known for her portrayal of animals, especially the family pet. She paints dog and cat portraits in both colored pencil and oil colors. She will be at the gallery on May 28.
The co-op is located at 93 Main Street in Waynesville. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday.
