THEATRE ART GALLERIES, 220 E. Commerce Ave., sponsors exhibits that continue through April 11. An opening reception will be held 5:30-7:30 tonight. Exhibits are:
• “Pushing Color to the Limit,” paintings by Catherine C. Martin of Apex — Main Gallery. Martin began painting at age of 10, and she now uses vibrant color and extremes designed to create dramatic paintings with confident brush strokes. Her studio in Apex is The Red Canvas.
• “Shared Passages,” works by Scott Michael Raynor and R. Bruce Shores— Gallery B and Hallway Gallery. Both men are professors of art at High Point University. Raynor’s work consists mostly of painting, prints and drawings created to explore the complex relationships between visual observation and his personal history. This series of paintings portrays mostly studio interiors as an avenue to explore harmonies of color and relationships. Shores’ paintings are recent excursions into an ongoing exploration of the possibilities of painting. They are created to be visual inquiries into a subject.
• Elementary School Art Exhibit featuring art by the students from Wiley, Foust, Union Hill, Shadybrook and Southwest elementary schools, Wesleyan Christian Academy, Westchester Country Day School, Immaculate Heart of Mary— Kaleidoscope Youth Gallery.
