Ball's widow, Jan Hoy, and Dennis' widow, Hiroko Dennis, and their son, Tasshi, will host Friday's opening from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Refreshments will be laid out.
Then, the show will stay up for public viewing Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
A portion of proceeds from art sales will be donated to the Jefferson Museum of Art and History.
Dennis and Ball “were much beloved,” said Bill Tennent, executive director of the Jefferson County Historical Society.
They “both left an enormous legacy of paintings,” he added.
“This is a nice way for the family to honor that” and for art lovers to acquire a painting while supporting the museum.
