Artist’s work was presented in a collage format allowing the viewer to study their personal style, techniques and use of materials then visit the next.

Columbia Art Center serves the community with art classes for young and old. The exposure of contemporary art hanging for six weeks in their galleries encourages innovation in emerging artists.
