Areas of vivid acrylic paint, sketchily outlined with charcoal, create a dynamic interaction, in paintings by Janice Mathews-Gordon.

The “bold expressions of women” in her “All My Sisters” paintings are on view at JRB Art at The Elms, 2810 N Walker.

The shows by Oklahoma City area artists Mathews-Gordon and Wilson are highly recommended in their run through Aug. 31.

Hours are from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and from 1 to 5 p.m. Sundays. Call 528-6336, or go to www.jrbartgallery.com for information.
