A summer art exhibition will open with a 5 to 7 p.m. reception Friday, July 1, at the Garage Gallery, located at Eastern Tire Company, 70 Park St.

The title of the theme show is "Food for Thought," open to wide interpretation by the artists. One way of looking at it is the idea that food for thought is sustenance and something that warrants serious consideration.

Included are works by Lauralee Clayton, Lois Anne, Audrey McGlashan, Stell Shevis, Edith LaRoche, Deborah Winship, Elizabeth O'Haverty, Marjorie Strauss and Rebecca Thompson, otherwise known as the 9 Lively Ladies.

All are invited to the First Friday reception. Regular viewing hours are weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 594-5250.
