For three more nights two local artists, who showed their work in St. Thomas for the first time in April, will have work hanging for public view. And it will be where they work, too. A reception will be held starting at 5 p.m. Thursday, April 22 at Alexander's Cafe in Frenchtown
Lexie Montgomery and Jessi Smith, the artists in question, work at Alexander's when they aren't creating art.
Montgomery, a multimedia artist, deals in found object sculptures using bottles, toys, and anything else that strikes her fancy. A graduate of Emily Carr College of Art and Design, Montgomery has addressed herself primarily to issues of sexuality, exploring the female experience.
Smith, an artist from Maine, uses the ocean and its creatures as her muse, working mainly in acrylic and pencil. Their works range from paintings and collage to found-art sculpture.
The show will hang at Alexander's through Saturday, April 24.
