Art reception and gallery talk

“Because We Like It: The Art Collections of Lenny and Anne Dowhie” is on display through Sept. 7, in the McCutchan Art Center Pace Galleries.

The exhibit, which consists of 118 ceramic, mixed media and woven sculptures and vessels, prints, paintings, drawings and jewelry, is the result of over 40 years of collecting art from around the globe by the two artists and teachers who call Evansville home.

A closing reception will be held from 6 to 8 p.m., Sept. 4. The Dowhies will share the stories behind their artwork.
