The Tri-County Arts Council is pleased to announce the exhibit opening for “Put the Paint to the Petal,” works by Sarah Phillips, at the Art on Main Gallery, 100 West Main Street in Allegany, on Friday evening, November 2nd from 6-8 p.m. Appetizers and beverages will be served at the opening reception which is free and open to the public. All are invited to come view these works on exhibit through December 21, 2018.
Sarah Phillips is a retired educator living in Rushford. Her love of the outdoors began in her childhood in Vermont and is what drew her to her first career teaching physical education for thirty years and then qualifying to become an art teacher. The switch seems out of place, but as Phillips explains, “both skills are dependent upon hand-eye-coordination. One needs to really see something before rendering it by hand.”
