Pamela Crockett exhibiting her work in Westminster

Baltimore artist Pamela Crockett is exhibiting "Unveiling: A View From the Inside" through Aug. 13 at Carroll County Arts Gallery in Westminster.

Her works depict objects that are obscured or in motion. One series, "In the Wings," depicts dancers obscured because of shyness. In "Underwater," objects appear below the water's surface, providing a translucent veil, hiding their identity.

Crockett has master's degrees in art and art history from the University of Iowa. She is an associate faculty member at the College of Notre Dame of Maryland.

A reception to meet the artist will be held from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. July 11 at the 15 E. Main St. gallery.

Information: 410-848-7272.

Audience members can meet the cast after the show and get autographs.

Tickets are $6.

Information: 410-857-2448.
