This past weekend marked the opening of the recent works exhibit at Uplands Cultural and Heritage Center for artists Sara Peck Colby and Alan Gerrish. The painter and the potter came together for the event to showcase their latest creations.
The exhibit, organized by Exhibitions Coordinator Dinah Duffield, will be going on from June 26 to August 21 featuring dozens of works from both artists; with everything for sale.
