VALPARAISO | In celebration of Mother’s day, the May art exhibit at The Village Gallery will feature mother-daughter duo, Jodi and Allison Nix. The exhibit will kick off with an Artists Reception at 1:30 p.m. Saturday. Both the exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.
For both women, artistic creativity started early in their lives. Their personal artwork reflects their individual journeys, as they discovered new techniques, methods and mediums. Jodi’s works have moved from sculpture and photo realism paintings to a more contemporary style featuring abstract landscapes. Focusing on pattern and color, Allison has found her artistic niche in 2 and 3 dimensional works that gravitate toward nature.
Both women are also art teachers at Chesterton High School. Jodi was a late bloomer, going back to school at age 40 to pursue her master’s degree in Art Education, while Allison always dreamed of being an art teacher. All
