A Step Above to Spotlight Change of Seasons
November 3, 2005

BERLIN - A "Change of Seasons" art show will kick off at A Step Above Art Gallery in Berlin with a reception on Saturday, Nov. 12, from 2-5 p.m. The November show will feature artists Cassie Hillis with her oils, Barbara Mowery with her acrylics, and Jim Conely and his photos of Delmarva.

Mowery, a recent transplant to Ocean City, is showing her work for the first time on the Delmarva Peninsula. Although largely self-taught, she has studied at Bridgewater College and Montgomery College. She has a unique style of painting that uses flat vivid colors and expressive lines to push the limits of the canvas. She simplifies shapes to emphasize important features of the people, animals, and landscapes she paints. Her sassy paintings spring from her knowledge of art history and mythology.
