BATAVIA – The Holmstad in Batavia will host an art exhibition, featuring the work of about 24 students from Geneva’s Beech Tree Studio from Friday, July 18, through Sunday, Sept. 21. The exhibit will feature artwork created with colored pencil.

The Holmstad, a faith-based, nonprofit continuing care retirement community,  will host an artists’ reception from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Friday, July 18, in the Town Center Gallery, 700 W. Fabyan Parkway, Batavia.

Mindful of the popularity of the PBS series “Downton Abbey,” studio owner Andria Burchett and her students selected “Penny Lane” as the theme for the show, states a news release.

“With a British-inspired theme, the works will feature something old worldish,” said Burchett in the release.

Guests will see English gardens, high tea, fox hunts, cobblestone alleyway and more.

The artist’s reception is free and open to the public.

The exhibit of colored pencil works is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
