PLYMOUTH — Plymouth Arts Center's new exhibit opening this weekend will give you an inside look at the relationships of eight couples.
The exhibit, "A Couple's Winter Blast," will have its opening reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 22. It will be on display through March 5. The center is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and noon to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
The featured couple artists are Pam and Richard Bronk, Phyllis and Bob Hoopman, Jane and Keary Kautzer, Angelynn Brown and Eric Paulson, Sylvia and Mark Mondloch, Donna and Mark Rittorno, Karen and Patrick Robison and Eileen and Don Urness.
The show includes a variety of mediums with oil, watercolor and encaustic paintings, leather purses and accessories, wood furniture/sculpture, jewelry, pottery, photography, sculpture, forged iron works and mixed media pieces.
Richard and Pam Bronk shared a photo taken years ago at another art fair.
"We are standing in my booth and we are smiling and enjoying our day. Thirty years later and 50+ years of marriage and we are still smiling and doing the things that give us joy," Pam Bronk said in the center's release.
“I think that we were very lucky to have found each other," Phyllis Hoopman said of her husband Robert. "Bob said he didn’t think that it was luck, so much as our willingness to keep our individuality and support our separate professions which caused our marriage to thrive; sharing our love and understanding for life’s adventures together.”
