Everyone who attended the show was given the opportunity to vote for your "People's Choice Best of Show", 170 of those votes were submitted, and I was just informed this morning that those votes have been counted and there is a winner for People's Choice... (mental drum roll) ...Rachel Huffman's wonderful nature painting entitled "Cheyenne County Condo".
I also want to add a bit of the upcoming schedule for the Quincy Street Gallery so you can mark your calendars.
Beginning September 10th will be a Kansas Weaver's Guild Exhibition which will include a wide range of different fabrics and textiles and the processes in which they are made. On hand will be a wide assortment of fabrics, textiles, looms, and during the opening night on Sept 10th from 7-9pm experts in the field will be in attendance to discuss the history, process, and diversity of textiles. This show is being sponsored by the United Methodist Thrift Store.
Closing out the year will be a showing of the paintings and drawings of local artist Kary Zweygardt. His award winning artwork will be available for viewing during November and December. This showing is sponsored by Natalie and John Knodel.
On the schedule so far for next year there will be showings for Rebel Joy, Allison Grice, a High School Art Show, an Alumni Art Show, David Hartman, and the 2nd Annual Juried Art Show.
There are exciting things happening down at the Quincy Art Gallery; the beauty, the culture, and the talent are there and available to you, and I hope everyone gets to experience all that the Quincy Art Gallery has to offer.
