"Travels" - You won't want to miss this show!

Peggy Harkins and Susan Schenk are our featured artists for July. Their show "Travels" opened on July 2 and will continue through August 3. The reception to honor the artists is planned for Saturday, July 13, from 6 to 9 p.m.
"Carpet Bag," Wooden Sculpture with leather straps by Peggy Harkins
Peggy, a former pharmacist, sculpts in wood, then engraves her designs and hand paints each of her remarkable creations. The pieces exhibited in this show include a Persian flying carpet, the carpet bag depicted above, hand and standing mirrors, a series of suitcases, a collection of purses, and a number of luggage tags - each item sculpted from wood. Her pattern designs and color palettes are influenced by fabrics from all over the world. You will be so impressed by Peggy's craftsmanship and creative pieces of art - I promise!
"Storm Over Canby," Collage by Susan Schenk
The creative collages by Susan are fascinating to explore. She uses maps, printed text, magazine images and scraps of colored papers to form her subject matter. As opposed to using paint and brushes, Susan "paints" with paper, scissors, and glue. The results are fun, imaginative, and unique. Her subjects for this exhibit include architecture, animal portraits, and landscape scenes.
It's a great show - you should make the effort to stop by the gallery during July to see the work in person.
