Artists’ reception at Provident
The Provident Bank’s Lobby for the Arts in Amesbury will host a reception with three local artists on Monday from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
Becca Donohue, Elizabeth Wilson Jackson and Renee Schneider have created this month’s exhibit, “Alternate Realms of Possibility” for the Lobby for the Arts program.
The reception will run from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the bank’s Amesbury branch, 5 Market St., through May 8.
A junior at the Boston Institute of Art, Donohue majors in photography and art education at Lesley University. Wilson Jackson, of Amesbury, uses a “highly stylized and methodical process...to provoke an experiential observation of the unconscious self.”
Schneider, of Amesbury, is a graphic designer and former kindergarten teacher. She owns and operates Colorful Kids in Amesbury where she teaches art to children. An artist, she creates an “eclectic mix of acrylic painting and mixed media.”
