PROVO — A group of artists who share common interests but have vastly uncommon styles and views on the world come together this month to exhibit a few of their works at the Terra Nova Gallery.

The artists are Brian Kershisnik, Chris Thornock, Ron Richmond, Steven Adams, Brad Aldridge and Doug Fryer.

"We're lucky to have them and for people here to see their works," gallery owner David Hawkinson said.

The exhibit, "unCommon Ground," runs from June 6 through July 25. On Friday it is part of the monthly Gallery Stroll sponsored by the Downtown Alliance. During that time, from 6-9 p.m. the gallery is hosting a reception for the artists.

The variety of styles include Thornock as a realistic portrait artist, while Kershisnik's objects are metaphorical, Hawkinson said.

"There are underlying stories and images in his work," he said.

Adams, Aldridge and Fryer paint realistic landscapes but each in his own style. Richmond paints realistic still life but deliberately places the objects in his paintings so as to have a deeper meaning.

The artists all exhibit in galleries outside Utah, including New Mexico and the West Coast, but all are well-known in Beehive State, Hawkinson said.

Terra Nova Gallery is at 41 W. 300 North.
