'Realm of the Serpent' exhibit planned

The Art for Change Partnership will exhibit "The Realm of the Serpent" from March 14 through April 30 at the Columbia Art Center in the Village of Long Reach.

A reception will be held April 10.

The exhibit will involve the community and artists from across the nation.

The Realm of the Serpent examines fear, prejudice and hatred through an in-depth artistic exploration of the role of the serpent throughout human experience.

Area artists Julie van Hemert, Beth Kosterich and Wendy Bush Hackney have created individual and collaborative works of art that will be displayed within a serpentine labyrinth.

The walk-through labyrinth will be constructed from hundreds of strips submitted by artists from across the nation.

The first three weeks of the exhibit will involve construction of the labyrinth and will include community participation through hands-on workshops and lectures.

During the April 10 reception, the labyrinth will be open to walk through. Workshops and lectures will continue.

Information: 730-0075.
