Washington artist Betsy Stewart will display a collection of paintings simply titled "Recent Works" in the Monroe Gallery. Illinois native Marikay Peter Witlock will show a collection of graphite drawings entitled "Sacred Spaces" in the MacFeeley Gallery. Both exhibitions are a part of the 1999-2000 Exhibition Season juried by Ross Merrill of the National Gallery of Art and will run from April 7 through May 6, 2000.

Marikay Peter Witlock brings her reverence for nature to the Arts Club with her "Sacred Spaces" collection. Known for the meticulous detail in her graphite drawings, Witlock emphasizes light and shadow to create introspective landscapes and striking images of fragile moments caught in time. The delicacy of her gardens, the haunting stillness of her winter landscapes, and the ethereal beauty of her figures affirm her fascination with nature. Witlock says each creation preserves a memory of a favorite place, "My art is about living, my living as completely as I can." Her works have been exhibited throughout the United States, and she is a member of the Illinois Artisans Program. (right: Homeplace, 1996)
