This week at the Renaissance Art Gallery
Who's minding the store?
Cartoonist Gary Labelle will be sitting the gallery on Friday May 6. This will be the first full day of our 4th Annual National Spring Exhibition, “Parks & Recreation” show. While the main gallery is still being worked on, the exhibition hall is open and packed with fine art. All the tags are now up, and you can see just who won what. Gary is always ready to welcome guests to our gallery. You can also see the progress we are making in the main gallery.
The weather is supposed to be better, still somewhat rainy, but not so cold and a bit brighter. Hopefully the worst of the spring rains are past and we can all start to get out and enjoy life a little more. The Gallery is really looking forward to some better weather.
Now for Other Things.
Ron Haeberle will be resuming his work on the main gallery. The closer it get to being done, the more anxious we all are for construction to be done. The Floor has been done, the center wall is up, now we need the new lighting and the south wall to be upgraded.
A Word on our Art Classes
Classes are going strong. Both of our adult painting classes, lead by Fern Christian are active and will be held as usual this week, but drawing classes, held on Wednsdays, are being canceled for the next two weeks. Artist Susan Tschantz will be out of town. Both the Junior Art Class and the Adult drawing Class will resume May 25, 2011. So that means that the May 11 and the May 18th studio hours will not be held and all classes on those days are canceled. If you have any questions, contact The gallery by phone at 304-525-3235 or e-mail at email@example.com.
