River gallery presents the quirky, diverse, humorous and empowered world of focus artist Andrea Peyton. Known for her ceramic sculptures: dogs with attitude, the faces of women, and most recently, totem sculptures, Peyton’s work is inspired by her diverse interests, her joy in her chosen medium, and a wry sense of humor. She uses a variety of media including ceramics, glass, mosaic, and has recently added assemblage and collage to her repertoire. She is drawn to the tactility of different materials-their character and the way they interact. Hours: Tues-Sat, 11am-5pm. River Gallery 184 S Main St. Independence http://www.rivergalleryart.com
