FRIENDS is the theme for our August exhibit. And when I say friends I don’t necessarily mean friends in the conventional sense. We usually think of friendsas a relationship between people or perhaps between a person and a beloved animal. That of course is wonderful. But feel free to interpret friends as a metaphor describing another kind of relationship all together. Consider the possibilities. All 2D and 3D art is eligible, including drawings, paintings, prints, sculpture, photography, digital works, mixed media, etc.
Stop in at Trinity United Methodist Church on Lake Drive to see the wonderfully fun paintings by Cindy Wojciakowski, a beautiful assortment of work from Darlene Podpolucki, and four magnificent religiously themed oils by Michael Stewart.
