Passions


Our February show at the Artists' Gallery is called Passions, and runs from February 9 - March 4, 2007. Opening reception is Feb 10 from 6pm - 9pm.

This is a group show with all of the gallery artists, and we're doing something a little bit different this time: the artists have created a number of 'art cards' - postcard size pieces of original art, which will be awarded in drawings during the opening reception. So if you're planning on seeing this show, be sure to come to the opening on Feb 10!

Some of the work you'll see:

New member: Beatrice Bork

The Artists' Gallery welcomes our newest member, Beatrice Bork.

Beatrice does beautiful watercolors, frequently featuring birds, sometimes cows and other creatures worthy of having their portraits painted by such a talented artist. She is a member of the prestigious international organization, the Society of Animal Artists, and will begin showing her work at the gallery beginning in February. Bea will have a 2-person show at the gallery with Marc Reed in May - you'll be hearing more about that pretty soon.

The image shown here, called "Intent", was juried into the Society of Animal Artists' show "Art and the Animal". The painting and exhibit is currently on a national tour with some of the best international animal artists. Next stop is at The Wildlife Experience in Parker, Colorado, opening Feb 9.

You can see more of Beatrice's work, and read more about the "Art and the Animal" tour on her website: www.beatricebork.artspan.com
