All shows will feature a variety of mediums and a theme. We also will be featuring a live music presentation in the gallery on an evening during the third week of each show.
January 20th – March 3rd A Midwinters Night Dream
Inspiration: The snow is piled upon the ground and the moon is shining brightly in a star filled sky. Incandescent blue and purple shadows mark the snow in shapes of leafless trees. The quiet cracking of ice on the rivers, lakes and ponds, is a beautiful sound akin to the extra cold climate of this far northern region.
March 9th – April 21st Springtime Floriade
Inspiration: Presented when we are in the grips of late winter early spring, this will be a treat for all. Featuring Floral Paintings and Photographs of Flowers & Gardens. Oversized Vases will be placed upon pedestals in the center space.
