There will be an opening reception for the exhibit, "Different Strokes," on April 22, from 6 to 8 p.m., at the arts center, 70 Sanford St.
"Different Strokes is an apt title for the exhibition," FAC's Executive Director Kristin Rasich Fox said in a statement. "Thirty-one artists working in a variety of media will grace our walls for the next two weeks, it's a reflection of aesthetic and personal style, the common denominator is an overt passion for their craft combined with a mutual respect and deep affection for their instructor, octogenarian Arlene Skutch."
For 42 years, Skutch is credited with inspiring area artists, meeting with them several times a week. She leaves her circa 1876 Cape Cod-style house -- painted a bright pink -- to meet with the group in her studio. "We have to be careful we don't get too noisy."
"Different Strokes" will run through May 7 at FAC's in the Ellen Hyde Phillips Gallery; works by Skutch herself will be shown in Gallery II.
