An exhibition of artwork by the late local artist Winifred Carol Wyman will open on Friday, Sept. 14 at Art of Hair in Basalt.

An opening reception for The Art of Winifred, Unframed and Unchained” will run Friday from 5 to 8 p.m.

Wyman died in 2013 but left behind a large catalog of paintings in her abstract, impressionist style.

The opening will include performances by classical musician Bruce Berger and magician Doc Eason. There will also be a book reading at 7 p.m. by Winifred’s son, John Wyman, author or “Against Her Will,” a cautionary tale about growing old in America.

John Wyman has also written the forthcoming “52 Moons” about his experiences in the 52 months he spent as his mother’s caretaker.

This will be the final local show of her paintings before they are featured in retrospectives in New York and Chicago.
