The work of 10 women is the focus of an art exhibit that opened Tuesday at Garden City Arts Gallery, 318 N. Main St. The show runs through May 10, when there's a closing reception from 5 to 7 p.m.

Featured artists include: Dawnel Francis, Elizabeth Baker and Laurie Chapman, Garden City; Tracy Teeter and Shalene Henley, Ulysses; Margaret Miller Butcher, Dodge City; Amy Warfield, Wichita; Jennifer Higerd, Washington, Mo.; and Amanda Calhoun, Corpus Christi, Texas.

In addition, GCA has partnered with Family Crisis Services to present an interactive display, "The Art of Recovery," in the small gallery. In this exhibit, local domestic abuse survivors created a display depicting the emotional impact of their journey and their own feelings of self-worth.

Other visual elements highlighting the topic also will be on display. Guests viewing the exhibit will have the opportunity to create their own message of hope and recovery for victims of abuse.

Viewing hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and noon to 5 p.m. Saturday.
