Blue Whole Gallery at 129 W Washington St. presents “Doing Our Own Thing” with featured artists Barbara Boerigter, a two and three dimensional artist, and Ryoko Toyama, a watermedia artist.

The resulting works can be intriguing, or not.” Ryoko Toyama shares that, “Painting is the active response to my world, past and present. Inspiration comes from visible objects, music, and words. I like to create “emotional reality” as described by Skip Lawrence.”
