The Main View Gallery & Studio's fall exhibit, "Show of Hands," will open Friday with a free, public reception. The venue is at 73 Main St. in Oneonta.

The show features handmade and hand-themed art pieces, including plein-air landscape drawings, painting installations, etched prints, and sewn, cast, fabric and paper.

Tim Sullivan's work, "Butterfly in My Hands," was selected as the cover art for the exhibition, and the featured artist is Jon Hartman. His series, "ReCollections," includes a number of handcrafted sewn creatures called "humbugs," created over a four-year period, as well as several highly embellished "found" dolls and stuffed animals.

According to a media release, Hartman's "love of textiles and unique perspective on harmonizing complementary colors is revealed in the heavily patterned and embroidered creations."

The opening reception will featureoriginal artwork, refreshments and art for sale.

The show runs through Nov. 18. For more information call (607) 432-1890 or visit
