A new art show has opened its doors at the River Arts Center.

Several members of the Geneseo, Ill., Art League will exhibit works from today through Sept. 25 at the center, 229 Fifth Ave. South. The art is from a European tour taken by the group, including Susan Bos, Shirley Burnett, Kris Love, Joyce Mattan, and Pauline Swanson.

There will be a free reception from 1 to 3:30 p.m. Sunday at the River Arts Center.

The artists took a bus tour of Italy, visiting a sampling of cities, small towns and countryside including Rome, Tuscany, San Gimignano, Pisa, Verona, Florence, Venice, Burano, Ravenna, Assisi and more.

After 10 days of the Italian tour, four of the travelers took an additional four-day trip to Slovenia.  

In addition to the painting of the Geneseo Art League, Bos will have pottery for sale during this exhibit.

Call the Clinton Art Association at 243-3300 for more information.
