MartinArts invites local art lovers to visit the newly renovated Court House Cultural Center & Gallery for the unveiling of “Works in Living Color,” an exhibition of original creations by the late and great Dorothy Gillespie. The unique collection will debut at the downtown Stuart gallery February 21. 

Gillespie was a prominent and groundbreaking New York artist from the mid-1940s until her death in 2012. Gillespie forged a career that was independent, innovative, and individual. She is credited with blazing a path for women artists during the Feminist Art Movement in the 1970s. A master of many mediums including painting, paper, sculpture, printmaking, environments and happenings, ceramics, jewelry, and set design, her works are included in numerous public and private collections. 

A donation of $5 in support of MartinArts’ exhibitions and programs is requested. The exhibit will be on view through April 15. Click here to learn more.
