BEVERLY — An opening night reception for "Brilliant Light" will be held from 7-9 p.m. Tuesday at Horse Thief Hollow in Beverly.
The art exhibit hosted by the brewpub at 10426 S. Western Ave. will feature the work of Dr. Audrius V. Plioplys of Beverly. The former neurologist-turned-artist has created several light fixtures that incorporate brainwaves and other mediums into expressions of art.
Plioplys' creations will be flanked by works from fellow Beverly artists including Jennifer Kolb, Dave Barsotti and Modie Lavin.
For the past two years, Beverly-based Local Art on Tap has put together three annual art shows at Horse Thief Hollow, according to event organizers Sal Campbell and Monica Wilczak.
Campbell has also put out a call for equestrian-themed art for the upcoming spring show. Submissions for "A Horse of a Different Color" are due March 19.
Inspiration for the next show was initially sparked by artists William Cazares and Joy Walsh of suburban Blue Island. After speaking with a few local contributors, Campbell decided to pursue the theme as well as invite several writers and literary artists to participate.
"I think this theme has 'legs' in that it asks artists, writers and storytellers to look at a subject in a different way, or tell a story about some one or thing that's unique. Horses can also evoke potential, luck, speed, tenacity, heart ... I think the variety of responses we'll get will be very interesting," Campbell said.
