Arrow Artists Art Guild spring show hosted at Wild Rose Gallery during month of April
The Wild Rose Gallery in Broken Bow is hosting the spring art show of the Arrow Artists Art Guild (AAAG) for the month of April.
The competitive show, with almost thirty pieces was judged by retired art instructor from Burwell, Paula Warner. “There was so much variety and talent, it was hard to decide on which nine pieces to select,” stated Warner. This is the show where selected entries will then go on to the state Association of Nebraska Art Clubs (ANAC) annual show which will take place in York, June 7-10.
Nebraska is the only state where a statewide organization of the forty art clubs or guilds has come together to have an annual show and conference with workshops and networking. More than 300 pieces of art in all mediums will be on hand for Kansas resident Greg Summers to judge. Best of Show, Award of Excellence, Honorable Mention as well as pieces selected to travel the state for a year will be selected by Summers. Visit www.nebraskaartclubs.org to learn more.
The Arrow Artists and their works selected for the state ANAC are
Beth Cole, Merna – painting entitled ‘Sheltered’
Pat Coslor, Sargent – painting entitled ‘Dancer in Love’
LaVerne Dodge, Callaway – painting, titled ‘After the Rain’
Racheal Fox, Kearney – 3D medium, portfolio entitled ‘Imagine’
Tresa Haney, Oconto – paining on canvas wrap, ‘Blue Elude’
Julie Kleeb, Broken Bow – abstract entitled ‘Lost’
Alissa Millsap, Broken Bow - painting, ‘Under His wing’
Dan Smith, Broken Bow – painting, ‘Bald Eagle in Flight’
Mary Smith, Callaway – abstract, ‘Contentment’
Dawn Johnson, Broken Bow received honorable mention on her photo titled, ‘Chinook.’
Mary Smith, president of the AAAG was also pleased with the entries. “Paula did an excellent job of critiquing and explaining why she selected as she did, which always helps for future art endeavors. We were thrilled to have Dan Smith’s pieces entered as he has only been painting a few months and is a remarkable artist, as is Racheal Fox who comes clear from Kearney to be part of our group. We do not have a building such as the Wild Rose to display our works, so we are grateful to them for hosting this show.”
The AAAG show is in the northwest room of the gallery, and can be seen from the street, but to get a full appreciation of their art and all the art on display, go inside and view them up close.
