CREATE THIS. Many artists love the challenge of interpreting a theme and making it their own.

Fifty artists have been invited to mull over Flora for a new exhibition of painting, fiber, furniture, sculpture and jewelry.

The works of regular and new gallery participants will be included in the exhibit at Obsidian Gallery, St. Philip's Plaza, Suite 90, 4340 N. Campbell Ave. The show opens Saturday and runs through July 21. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays. For more information, call 577-3598 or e-mail obsidiangal@earthlink.net.
