Gallery 1001 invites all to come to its open house from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday at 1001 Main St., in Winfield.
The gallery will introduce and present the works of its newest member and artist, Cathlin McReynolds of A Jolly Yarn, in the month of December.
A talented and gifted artist, photographer, designer and knitter, McReynolds is also a skilled bookbinder creating books that can be used as journals, diaries, notes, poetry, drawing, writing or even recipes of favorite dishes. These books would make an excellent and unique Christmas gift. Some of her works can be seen at interurbanarthouse.org.
Along with McReynolds’s works, the gallery will have a number of works on display by other resident artists. From paintings and photographs of landscapes, graphic arts, abstract, woodworking, sculptures, pottery and more.
The gallery will also host its annual Christmas ornament painting from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Dec. 12. The cost per person will cover ornaments, paints and brushes. With the threat of COVID-19, these can be trying times, so those who wish to, can also come in and purchase an ornament to take home and paint. But for those who choose to stay and paint, instruction and assistance will be provided by resident artist Bubba VonMax (aka Max Kidwell).
The gallery does ask that face masks be worn while visiting the gallery and that social distancing be observed.
Gallery 1001 also invite everyone to check out its Facebook page at www.facebook.com/Gallery1001 and see works from member artists and get information on upcoming exhibits.
