Artists on View in Siouxland, Le Mars Arts Council

2 Nov

In another week or so I and some other area artists will put our work on view at the Le Mars Arts Council Art Center. I have not participated in such an endeavor since the mid-1990’s when a gentleman I knew invited me along to show some work in Lake Tahoe, California during an art show there. My work pales in comparison with a lot others work I have seen and see. The tempting thing about exhibiting in Lake Tahoe was that I had a day off and went hiking up into one of the high peaks and hung out at a crystal clear lake.

But in November those interested can view a variety of work at the Art Center’s open house. I feel very humbled to be able to participate.

The person putting this all together is the center’s administrator Judy Marienau. A wonderful woman who is excited about seeing everyone’s work.

I have been through a lot of art centers as I have lived in various parts around the country when I previously worked for newspapers. And I enjoy it immensely looking at the work and getting a chance to talk with the various artists.  There is no limitation to some of these people’s imagination and their skill in the chose medium they work in. Even if one is not “rich” enough to take away a couple of pieces to later enjoy in one’s own abode, you are enriched by viewing and admiring the work of these artists.
