Shortly after the Rappahannock Art League (RAL) opened the Studio Gallery on North Main Street in Kilmarnock, a group of 12 artists decided to get together to paint and critique their work. They had the idea that in working together, they could push each other to try new approaches to their art.
The group continues today, with most of the original RAL members as well as new artists, and relies on each other for honest opinions, advice and support. In addition, they share information about new media and processes to encourage further experimentation.
This “Experimental Group” has an exhibit at the Studio Gallery through March 29. The members of the group who are exhibiting are Marge Alderson, Linda Bruner, Jacquie Colligan, Lella Lee Edwards, Naomi Myrick, Mel Neale, Rose Nygaard, Sue Ramsey, Nancy Reath, Joan Robinson and Sarah Soderlund.
