Glass artist exhibit at Artist Exposure Gallery
“The Color of Nature,” a new solo exhibit by glass artist Joe Davis, of
Kingston, opens with an artist's reception from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, June
21, at the Artist Exposure Gallery, located at 26 Howland St. in Plymouth.

have lost our connection with nature itself, because no one takes the
time to look anymore. Many great artists have long been considered to
have been color blind, including Van Gogh and Picasso.

wowed art lovers across the country.
