Southgate plays with color, texture and light in her mixed media pieces.

Adding watercolor and acrylic paint to some papers and hand making others gives her a wide range from which to choose.

Southgate’s artwork and that of 19 other artists is on display at Lakeside Artisans, 191 W. First St., Oswego.

Lakeside Artisans is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Thursday until 8 p.m. during the farmers’ market, and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.
