Spring really does evoke energy, possibility, and excitement, growing right through the canvas of Elizabeth Schwartz’s Seasons exhibition. Bask in the blooming rays of her summer sun. Watch vibrant colors shine and dull as she calls autumn to mind, and then sit upon the quiet snow to wait the winter by. Schwartz’s abstract, nature-inspired art of impressions and interpretations conveys all the seasons of the memory: of life, of time, and of death. Reminisce with “Seasons,” on display at the WSG Gallery from May 10-June 19. WSG Gallery, 306 Main St. 734-761-2287. www.wsg-art.com
