‘HUCTW Creates’ showcases range of talents

“HUCTW Creates: The Visual Arts,” a group art exhibit featuring visual artist members of the Harvard Union of Clerical and Technical Workers (HUCTW) will be up through July 31 at Gutman Library, 6 Appian Way. The closing reception will be held July 31 from 5 to 7 p.m.

The exhibit showcases a variety of media and styles — from realist oil painting and sculpture to photography, abstract painting, quilt making, and hand-painted bicycles.

“HUCTW Creates: The Visual Arts” is part of an ongoing effort by the union to showcase the talents of its members. The exhibit was preceded by “HUCTW Writes” (held during summer 2006), which gave members an opportunity to read selections of their works. HUCTW is currently planning a series of concerts performed by its musician members.
