As spring approaches, Grant’s Meadowlark Gallery will be coming to life with a new lineup of talent to be displayed at 246 Central Ave.
Gallery Manager DeeAnn Tatum has booked a full schedule of events for the gallery’s 2011 shows, beginning in March, and continuing through November.
Kicking off the year will be the Under 18 show during the month of March in celebration of Youth Art Month. High school instructor Lance Wurst’s students will have their work on display March 4-5 and 11-12; and junior high/elementary instructor Susan Hanson will display her students’ work March 18-19 and 25-26.
April will feature woodcarving by Grant carvers Archie Silvrants and John Potts as well as graphite drawings by Tina Simeon of Ogallala.
May’s show will include pictures by award-winning photographer Suzi Bullock of Madrid.
Painter Mindy Schulz of Ogallala will be headlining during the month of June.
Celebrate Christmas in July with the Quilted Leaf Quilt Guild as they display hand crafted holiday quilts in mid-summer.
Our very own Lance Wurst, a national award-winning artist and instructor at Perkins County High School will display watercolors during the month of August.
September will feature Imperial’s Marcia Bauerle whose collages combine color and texture in eye-catching compositions.
October through mid-November will again be a kaleidoscope of color with one-of-a-kind decorated chairs along with handcrafted quilts.
There is truly something for everyone at Meadowlark Gallery. Plan to visit Friday and Saturday evenings from 6-8 p.m. and attend monthly open houses to meet the artists and enjoy refreshments with arts council members.
Check the arts council website at perkinscountycreators.com and their Facebook page for past shows and arts council happenings.
The gallery is operated by the Perkins County Area Arts Council, which meets the second Thursday of each month, 7 p.m. at the gallery. The public is invited to attend.
