New Exhibit in Marion Iowa

We arrived from France about a week ago and got very busy with a showing of our pastel work at the Lowe Park Arts and Environment Center in Marion Iowa.

We had everything ready for this exhibit before we left for France. This really helped since we were dealing with the time zone change on our return. There were just a few small things that we had to do before loading the entire 53 pastel paintings into our favored 1981 station wagon. What an effort that was. We were glad we had done most of the preparations before we left, because the time zone (jet lag) was really difficult.

We have had many exhibits through the years, a good example is at the Figge Art Museum in Davenport Iowa last December. Well this is even a better place to exhibit because it shows a more consistent flow of our styles with a large body of work from each of us. Each of us; very different but yet our styles work well together.

I hope you are able to visit the exhibit. There is some road repair going on in the area, so I’ll include some directions that may help:

Take 380 North thru Ceder Rapid and travel about 9 miles past Cedar Rapids. Turn off at the Toddville exit (exit 28) Go east on County Home Road-you will go past Alburnett Road, then turn right on North 10th St. Go South on 10th St (about 5 miles)

The place is the Lowe Park building that is run by the city of Marion for public events and especially exhibits like ours. It will be on your right on 10th St The building seems alone and by its self but there’s housing developments all around that will someday reach the center.

We truly hope to see you at our Grand Opening at the Lowe Park Arts and Environment Center.  More info below:
