When Barbara Bradley Rutz, owner of Azure Rising Gallery invited fellow artist Corina Willette to curate a July show called Visions of Healing the invitation was readily accepted and now you are invited to come along to the gallery at 628 South Main Street, Wolfeboro to enjoy the exhibition.

These artists are:- Carol Whalen, Deidre Scherer, Margery Thomas Meuller, Louise Duchard, Beverly Woods, Barbara Bradley Rutz, Emily Marsh, Peter Abate, Corina Willette and Valerie Schurer Christle.

Margery Thomas Meuller is recognized for her sensitive, painterly pencil works which can be seen at Patricia Ladd Carega Gallery in Center Sandwich during the month of July. Her collaged contribution to this show is a powerful statement of her reaction to 9/11.
