Opening reception for new city hall exhibit

Grand Junction City Hall, located at Fifth Street and Rood Avenue, is set to host a new exhibit of art Friday, April 5, by Grand Junction artists. The Grand Junction Commission on Arts and Culture will be putting on an opening reception for the exhibit 5:30-7 p.m. as part of the First Friday Art Hop. The public is invited to attend.

Local blacksmith Kristian Hartter will be showing his "Masks" exhibit, creative faces made from wire art. You will experience the fun flow of Mary Hertert's "Jellyfish" fabric art and the "District 51 Senior Show," featuring more than 65 pieces from talented seniors across the valley.

The new artwork will be on display through the end of the June, and many of the pieces are for sale by contacting the individual artists. The commission organizes the quarterly rotating exhibits of original work by local artists to showcase the interesting and exceptional artwork being created by Grand Valley residents.

City Hall is open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. For more information, contact Lorie Gregor at 970-254-3876 or lorieg@gjcity.org.
