Ben Groff and Cyndi Brown featured at Gallery North

For the month of April, Gallery North in Edmonds presents "Range of Light: Landscapes from Near and Far," by oil painter Ben Groff, together with ceramic animal sculptures by Cyndi Brown. The exhibit is open to the public daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Groff's landscapes have been a feature of Gallery North for several years. He believes that "realism must never be an end in itself; rather the brush must adapt itself to the object and the object to the brush so that a deeper sense of the reality of the scene can emerge."

Brown is a lifelong artist who eight years ago discovered clay sculpting.

An artist's reception is 1-4 p.m. April 2 and during Art Walk Edmonds April 21 from 5-8 p.m.
