Embellished coats reflect the hope of cancer survivors.

Two art shows will open Thursday at the Chester County Art Association in West Chester.

In the Allinson Gallery, a juried group show comprised of almost 200 pieces united by the theme of "Water" includes an array of works in all media, both representational and abstract. The juror for the show is Donna Usher, an art professor at West Chester University who is represented by the LGTripp Gallery in Philadelphia. 

On display in the Huston Gallery is an exhibition entitled "Coats of Hope," an exhibition of art coats created by the Cancer Survivors’ Art Therapy group, which meets at the Chester County Art Association.  The embellished and tailored coats are as varied as the artists who have made them.  They are meant as an individual expression of each person’s hope in dealing with the experience of cancer.

 The public is invited to the opening reception for both shows on Thursday evening from 5 to 8 p.m. The work will be shown through April 5 at CCAA, 100 N. Bradford Ave., West Chester.
