  • Janice Parker Muir’s oil, pastel and acrylic paintings will be displayed in a solo exhibit titled, “Fields and Scapes,” July 7-Aug. 12 at Karen Wray Fine Art Gallery.  The opening reception will be from 5-7 p.m. Thursday.
    After shoulder surgery Muir realized there was an opportunity to launch a new artistic direction. Since she could no longer sustain her normal easel position, she began using an easel that can lay flat, which allows her to paint comfortably.
    “In my mind this is a pre- and post-surgery show,” Muir said. “Most of the pastels will be the ‘pre’ with the acrylics being the ‘post.’ ”
