While all of the entries are noteworthy, one exhibit of the late John Bayides is especially significant. There are six oil paintings representing his unique perspective on life. Subjects range from a floral bouquet, a lighthouse, shrimp boat, and deer hunting to one particular painting of two women friends titled Helping Hands.

Becky Bardin always has something new to offer in the field of photography. This year her display is of the scenes she captured while she and her family spent 10 days in October visiting the national parks of the Southwestern states. Her subjects titled Curvaceous, Dust and Shadows, The Patriarchs, Hoodoos and Suppertime at Sinawava reflect the beauty of nature and the culture of the peoples who inhabit the areas.

The show continues on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through Sunday, April 1.

Hours are 1 to 4 p.m. Fridays and Sundays, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays.
