The Little Pink House Gallery in Genesee will showcase the exhibition “Renewal (Summer)” on Saturday and Sunday.

Contemporary artists featured in the exhibit include David Roon, a Moscow artist and professor of natural resources and society at the University of Idaho. Roon will show clay works influenced by his passion for environmental science. Woodcarver Jana Vrtělová Hobert will exhibit earrings hand-carved from basswood, birch and pine scraps, primarily leftover from her marionette-making. Raised in the Czech Republic and now living in Moscow, Hobert’s painted jewelry works are a contemporary reflection of old-world puppetry — an interest and talent she inherited from her grandfather.

Other artists showing are Jill Birschbach, Casey Doyle, Amanda Harlow, David Herbold, Lauren McCleary, Noah Schuerman and Ellen Vieth, the gallery’s owner. Historical plein air paintings by Ruth Miller (1904-78) also will be for sale.

Exhibition hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. Masks are required in the gallery at 157 N. Elm St. More information is at
