A new art exhibit showcasing the work of four local artists called the “Creative ‘Four’ce” was displayed at the Marshall Place Gallery on Wednesday.

The event was sponsored by the Marshall Regional Arts Council, and showcased work from Gail Cochrane, Terri deNatale, Mary Jean Davis and Patty Lovelace.

All four women are good friends, having met at the Visual Arts Center in Marshall, and enjoy working on projects together through the MRAC.

Each artist displayed a variety of different works from multiple mediums, with all works on display available for purchase.
