Two artists, one looking just like the other, will paint on the same canvas at the Forest & Ocean Gallery during the Thursday, Oct. 6 Artwalk.

JoAnn Unger and Jacqueline Blue, well-established artists and identical twins, will demonstrate how they created their new series “Wave Studies,” where their individual styles will combine in what they describe as “a splash of eloquent statement.”
