Painter Ebeth Scott-Sinclair opens an exhibition of new paintings called 'The Grand Dames' with a reception Saturday, June 14, from 2 to 7 p.m. at Bill Hester Fine Art, 143-F West Franklin Street, in University Square. 'Her women are always powerful,' Hester said of Scott-Sinclair's work. 'Even when their eyes express a sweet melancholy they do not project sadness. Her women engender the sense of wholeness that comes from a life lived with honesty and beauty.'Call 960-0059 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
