Well, here we are well into the first month of the new year. All our decorations are down and packed away, and winter has arrived. My winter house cleaning was done after the decorations came down. I admit the house looks a little sad to me. I rearranged some art and moved a few pieces of furniture around to freshen up the area for the rest of the winter.
I finished a painting and got it framed for the current Open Session exhibit at the Arts and Heritage Center, which continues until the end of February. An Open Session exhibit means there is no required subject matter. Each artist can choose the subject. This exhibit was open to any juried artist for the AHCNA, not just the North Augusta Artists Guild. This gallery exhibit is sponsored by the Sertoma Club of North Augusta.
It is a nice exhibit with a wide range of subject matter. You will see everything from bluebirds and beach, desert and Western scenes to an auto flower planter, pixies, 3D art, pen and inks, oils, acrylics and water colors in addition to photographic art.
The following artists are exhibiting in this event: John Krok, Margaret Augustine, Brian Mooney, Casey Szocinski, John Bigger, Sharon Taylor Padgett, Dianne White, Doug Dooley, Mike Kleiman, Chris and Bill Bova, Jill Gunn, Kaye Ward, Kay Lovingood, Ron Buttler, Wanda Dansereau, Janice Livingston, Margaret and Dennis Estep, Joy McDowell and myself.
If you haven’t stopped in to view the exhibit, you need to take the time and see what exiting art work is on display. Don’t forget to walk through the history exhibit.
There will be new and exciting changes coming this spring time in our lovely city, which I will cover in my next column. Remember, if you have something in the arts coming up or you would like me to cover please contact me.
