5 Upcoming Exhibits, Events and Workshops at Norcross Gallery and Studios

Norcross Gallery and Studios is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization located in downtown Norcross at 116 Carlyle St.

This summer, Norcross Gallery and Studios has several special events on the agenda.

1. Kaleidoscope, a collaborative show of selected member’s works is ongoing until Saturday May 18.

Among the featured pieces is “Amethyst Meditation” by Victoria Gibson. This striking creation, reminiscent of a sparkling geode, incorporates genuine amethyst stones. Gibson says the piece is “made with positive energy, and real Amethyst stones, to feel a balance and continuous flow of energy to your Crown Chakra.”

“Cosmos on a Cosmos” by Barbara Fraher is a vibrant work of art with a unique juxtaposition. Supernovas, dwarf stars, and a pulsar from the vast cosmos find themselves intertwined with a single garden flower.
