NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — "Emergence," an exhibition featuring new work by Debi Pendell, Diane Sawyer, Sarah Sutro, and Betty Vera, has opened and is on view June 3–30 at the Eclipse Mill Gallery.
The four artists have created a variety of imagery in acrylic, collage, ink, oil and cold wax, pastel, and woven threads. 
According to a press release:
Debi Pendell is exhibiting work from two series. In one, she collages rescued throwaway materials from the trash and gives them new life in the context of a grid format. In the other, she alternates layers of collage, sanding, and painting in representational/abstract landscapes that continue her ongoing exploration of how people "read" various symbol systems and make meaning from them.
Diane Sawyer, known for her pastel paintings, also works in oil and cold wax to explore shifts in both the natural landscape and our internal experience, as we move from winter to summer and the terrible grip of the pandemic begins to loosen.
Sarah Sutro draws the viewer into the emotional edge of abstraction through her ink drawings and acrylic paintings based on nature. Her series “Marking Lives” is a resurgence from the year of isolation and grief.
Betty Vera's Jacquard tapestries depict light emerging from darkness, using dots of woven color. Inviting introspection and quietude, she focuses on aspects of our environment that often go unnoticed.
