Off Season?

Posted Monday, November 7, 2011, at 11:07 AM

(Clock-wise from the left - Mari Stewart's mobile "Luminous Tear Drops", "Out-of-the-box" drawing class with Hank Hall and "Art on a Card" exhibit at Arts on Grand in Spencer.
If there were an "off season" for the Artisans Road Trip you'd be hard pressed finding it!

A.R.T. artist Mari Stewart of the Side Street Gallery and Frame Shoppe in Arnolds Park, recently exhibited in the Rock Rapids Annual Art Show. The annual show is put together by the Rock Rapids Business Women and is in its 46th year. Mari's mobile "Luminous Tear Drops" was awarded 1st place in the three dimensional division.

On the teaching side of art - Hank Hall is holding his "Out-of-the-box Drawing Class", an adult drawing class that started November 2nd, Wednesday afternoons at Art on 16th in Olde Town Spirit Lake. Classes run for four weeks.

And, as mentioned in the last A.R.T. blog - "Art on a Card" continues at Arts on Grand in Spencer. This exhibit features several A.R.T. artists and their select artwork is available as Christmas/Holiday Cards for purchase at Arts on Grand. This fund raising event supports the arts in Spencer. The exhibit (sponsored by Woolverton) runs through December 10th.

Watch for more from artists of the Artisans Road Trip!
