The Sanctuary Art Gallery at Canaan Congregational Church welcomes the public to its opening reception for the 13 artists exhibiting their works in "Frames of Reference" from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, July 26. Admission is free and light refreshments will be served.

Guest curator Melissa Sarris and gallery intern Thea Ezinga have pulled together photography, sculpture, painting, drawing, and fabric art to compare and contrast the differing and similar world views of the artists.

The exhibit will be in residence at the Sanctuary Gallery through Sept. 7. The Gallery is open every Sunday from 11:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. and by appointment.
