Gallery 50 Hosts Spice of Life Reception


WAYNESBORO —Gallery 50 hopes to add a little spice to your holidays with its new exhibit, “The Spice of Life: Art for the Holidays and Beyond.” The public is invited to an opening reception for the art show on Friday, November 4 from 5:30–8 p.m. at 50 West Main Street in downtown Waynesboro. The evening will showcase the new artwork and include free refreshments in addition to live music from Prophets of the Abstract Truth in the adjacent Music Makers space.

The 10 featured artists are Melissa Hook, Roberta Iula, Amélie Lavenant-Wink, Leslie McEntire, Mary Moores, Nancy Rehm, Heidi O’Toole, Kyle Vogel, Anita Williams, and Gallery 50 curator Marti Yeager.

“We’re looking forward to sharing this exciting new exhibit for the holiday season and beyond,” Yeager said. “Featuring 10 talented artists with their own unique styles, this show is a wonderful mix of artwork in oil, pastel, acrylic, and photography.”

The gallery will also have new fine art and crafts by local artists available on the shelves, including pottery, wood carvings, jewelry, holiday items, and more.

A special raffle will begin during the reception as well, with one of Marti Yeager’s original paintings as the prize, a 11×14 oil entitled “Pennsylvania Field.” The winning ticket will be drawn in mid-December.

Following the reception, the exhibit will be on display through April 15. Gallery 50 is open on Fridays from 5–8 p.m., Saturdays from 11:30 a.m.–2:30 p.m., and by appointment. In addition, the full exhibit will soon be available to browse and purchase on the gallery’s online shop at
