    April 28, 2018, 8:30 AM - 8:30 PM

The Leonia artists presenting their work in this show perpetuate that rich heritage. This unique exhibition features emerging artists exploring different mediums using diverse styles in abstracts in oil, watercolor, acrylic, and photography. Artists' works presented in the show include Elizabeth DeMarco, Pam Fenwick, Katharina Castiblanco Grammer, Nanda van Ginkel, Marsha Heller, Paul Leibow, James Leynse, Ronald Pancrazi, Vince Priblo and Steve Swank.
