Longtime Spiral Gallery members Lynn and Oscar Flores continued their creativity through the pandemic.
"I paint every day, but it was harder this year," Oscar said.
"Just the Two of Us" showcases their work and will be featured in the Spiral Gallery through the end of August.
The show includes brightly painted scenes and landscapes, ceramic dishes and necklaces.
"We both like to do different things, and not do the same thing over again," said Lynn, who is a potter.
She added that it's always rewarding to see the show come together after working on all of the pieces.
"The walls look so empty and I wonder what we'll do, but it always comes together," she said.
Though gallery members did not host their usual first Friday gathering because of the recent rise in COVID-19 cases, Oscar and Lynn still appreciate the connections with their fellow artists.
"It's cool to be part of the gallery," Lynn said. "We're so glad to be here."
Oscar added that the most rewarding part is "the brotherhood and sisterhood."
"In Spanish, we say camaradería," he said, describing the atmosphere at the gallery.
