April showers have brought May flowers, but Brush Strokes Gallery offers visitors an opportunity to explore Mother's Day gifts beyond the traditional and temporal bouquet--original art that will last a lifetime and serve as a constant reminder of the love and gratitude of those they cherish. In this month's exhibit, the gallery's painters and photographers will join glass artisans, ceramic artists, and jewelry crafters, to present a spectrum of 3-dimensional creations. Artwork in the exhibit include whimsical birdhouses that may recall treasured moments spent together in nature, pendants, necklaces, and earrings that will always be a symbol of loved ones, surprising and pleasing pop-up books, and pottery that can adorn mothers' homes. Brush Strokes Gallery, located at 824 Caroline Street in downtown Fredericksburg, is open daily from 11 AM to 5 PM. "May Is for Moms" will be displayed from April 30 to May 27, and visitors will have an opportunity to meet and speak with the gallery's artists at its opening reception on Friday, May 4, from 6:00 to 9:00 pm.
