The works of two area artists may be seen at the Ocala City Hall through Sept. 30 and the Ocala International Airport through Jan. 17, 2023.

“In a Galaxy Far, Far Away,” acrylic, Christine Dozier

The exhibit of works by Christine Dozier, called “Colorful Pleasures,” opened earlier this week at the Ocala International Airport at 1770 S.W. 60th Ave., Suite 600.

Dozier, who is originally from Memphis, Tennessee, now lives in Ocala. She studied art at the Memphis College of Art, University of Memphis. She worked as a behavioral health nurse for more than 20 years.

“Clearing #1″ by Julijana Donovska Prest

In the 1980s, she worked in watercolors before moving into oils and acrylics a decade later. She enjoys painting landscapes, abstracts, still life, animals and pet portraits. Many of her paintings are to private collections and hang in corporate offices throughout the United States.

A collection of Dozier’s paintings also can be seen at the Gallery B Art Gallery in downtown Ocala.
