LUMBERTON — An exhibit at Lumberton’s Inner Peace Center for the Arts will bring together three diverse artists who share one thing in common: They all hail from the Robeson County area.

“Compilation” opens at Inner Peace Center for the Arts Thursday with a reception from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

The exhibit, on view through November, includes work by painter Alisha Locklear, ceramicist David Ybarra and large-scale painter Burritt “Bucky” Benson.

Melvin Morris, the artist behind Inner Peace Center for the Arts, said “Compilation” is just that — a mix of varied works into one cohesive exhibit.

The exhibit will give viewers “a variety of artwork to look at from something as minimal as a 2-D piece of work to the large scale work that Bucky does and David’s 3-D work,” said Morris, who has collaborated with all three artists featured.

Thursday’s reception, which is free and open to the public, will include food and a wine tasting. All of the artists will introduce themselves and be available to speak with attendees.

Inner Peace Center for the Arts is located at 700 S. Roberts Ave.
