Gallery B is pleased to present the first exhibition of 2017, Local Color, by the “Seven Palettes” featuring artwork by Sara Becker, Nancy Brown Butler, Helen Gallagher, Caroline Orrick, Ann Rossilli, Elizabeth (Penny) Smith and Maureen Ward.

The Seven Palettes is comprised of a group of women who have joined together to increase their immersion in art. “Individually we are all doing well, but we found that in working together, we could pool our resources and accomplish more, plus support each other and have more fun,” the members say. “We can be honest with each other about aspirations, about the foolishness of some ‘rules,’ and about our artwork.” They have been working cooperatively since 2012 on activities that include joint workshops and group exhibits, individual and collective websites, and group painting expeditions, near and far.
