Dixie Howard & Martha Compton

dixie howard 168x240Gaslight Art Colony is pleased to present the artwork of Martha Compton of Jewett and Dixie Howard of Toledo with a photography show called “Where You Find It”. Both Martha and Dixie have enthusiasm for the many faces of nature and humanity in the region and in other locations as well. An interest in the visual has inspired them to produce a unique collection of original photographs. The variety in their approach has produced photos that range from special moments in natural everyday life to outstanding and unusual sights that appear when least expected. It’s a show you don’t want to miss. The opening Artist’s reception will be Saturday, May 20th from 5:00 till 8:00 pm (new hours). Their work will be on display at the gallery at 516 Archer Avenue in Marshall May 20th through June 10th.
