Next Interacting with Art set for Oct. 10

SHERIDAN — Community members have the opportunity to meet local artists and watch them at work during Expressions Art Gallery’s ongoing series, Interacting with Art.

Jan Hodson, a successful landscape oil painter whose work is found in private and corporate collections across the globe, will be the next artist to demonstrate her work Thursday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Hodson’s work is unique, as she only works with pallet knives — no paintbrushes.

This event is free and open to the public. Expressions is located at 645 Broadway St. in Sheridan.
