BELOIT — The Beloit Art Center’s January show will feature the works of The Visionary Artists, a group of painters from the Whitewater/Fort Atkinson area. 

Formed in 2008 as an art-critique group, The Visionary Artists meet monthly with a goal to enrich their artistic energies and expand their creative processes. Six artists of this group will be showing more than 100 pieces.

The show opens Friday, Jan. 5, at 520 E. Grand Ave. in downtown Beloit. The opening night event, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., is free and open to the public. The artists will be on hand to meet the public and discuss their art.

The artists are:

  • Thomas Jewell, an oil painter who draws his inspiration from nature, often painting landscapes and water scenes.
  • Barbara Grant, who looks at art as a playful, inventive process using accidents, smudges, mistakes and spills as a pathway to her creations.
  • Marilyn Fuerstenberg, who works with transparent watercolors which allow her to capture subtle and vibrant color through multiple washes.
  • Joyce Follis, who uses the flow of colors and water as they mix together on a blank piece of paper to create paintings that draw the viewer in.
  • Mary Nevicosi, who uses a simplistic approach to art responding to her surroundings, the seasons and the people and things she loves. She paints quickly and does not limit herself to any one technique, style or medium.
  • John Dynkowski, who discovered watercolor to be his medium of choice. He paints the scenery that surrounds him — from cityscapes to rural landscapes.

The show will continue through Friday, Jan. 26. For more information, go online to beloitartcenter.com.
