She was invited to participate in "Women 71" at Northern University, DeKalb last year. Mrs. Stringer, a practicing artist during her adult life, found her interest was in the surface of her canvases.

Which was no longer a painting, but a construction," remarked Mrs. Stringer. While Mrs. Stringer's work uses both representational and abstract themes, her consistancies are excellent craftsmanship, subdued color and superb design. Fred Rathgeber prepared this exhibit for display. Phyllis Stringer's constructions will occupy Gallery I through June 30. . The Civic Art Center is located at 114 E.
