---- — The Community Arts Network of Oneonta is showing an exhibit of regional artists Elizabeth Nields, Chelsea Gibson and Colleen O’Hara at The Galleries at Wilber Mansion at 11 Ford Ave. in Oneonta.
Nields’ clay work can be found in private collections and galleries in the U.S. and Europe. A grouping of her Elephant Temple pieces were included in the Patrick Lannon Foundation Museum in Florida. She has taught at Adelphi College, Hofstra University, Montclair State College, Hartwick College and the State University at Oneonta. She offers intensive workshops at her own studio in Gilbertsville.
Gibson, a painter, lives and works in Gilbertsville. With an Master of Fine Arts degree from Boston University and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Rhode Island School of Design, she spent the last year teaching at the University of North Alabama in Florence, Ala., and has participated in several solo and group shows in the Midwest, South and Northeast.
O’Hara, of Otego, is interested in the internal structure of living things, according to a media release. Through painting abstract spaces, her work is questioning connections that exist in nature between plants, animals and humans. She focuses primarily on issues of structure and composition.
The show is up through Nov. 26.
Gallery hours are 4 to 8 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays and noon to 3 p.m. Sundays and by appointment.
