Linda Davis, long-time art promoter and artist, will display four of her Aboriginal art pieces in the show “Music: Our Creative Response in Visual Art, Writing and Song.”

The show, with eight other artists exhibiting 35 pieces, runs through Jan. 31, 2013 at St. Barnabas Lutheran Church, 15600 Old Rockford Road in Plymouth. Admission is free. Call ahead for hours at 763 553-1239 or visit www.stbarnabaslutheran.org.

Musical scores, poetry and fine art comprise the exhibit.

“This is an extremely talented group of women,” Davis said.

To become a member of the Pen Women’s professional organization, one needs to have sold artwork or made a living by the pen, including musical composition, fine arts, poetry or any form of writing.

Founded in 1897, NLAPW is based in Washington, D.C., and has chapters nationwide.

Among many venues, Davis’ artwork and involvements have been displayed at Blaine City Hall, on North Metro Television, the Anoka Chamber of Commerce, Minneapolis Institute of Art and Anoka-Ramsey Community College.
