"Life Goes On" Art Exhibit ~ Nov 4, 2021 - Jan 15, 2022
The Towncrest Area Artists Group (TAAG) is having a Gala Gallery Re-opening in the new exhibit, Life Goes On. Taag artists have been hard at work through the pandemic and have some wonderful works to show. Featured artists include Karl Sternberg with his new charcoal series, Space. John McGlinn and his abstracts called space-stacking. RE Henry's vividly colored oil paintings. Mixed media by Ashley Gillette and Eve Minkler. Plus many other incredible works of art, including sculptures, book arts, acrylic and watercolor paintings. Join us for a glass of wine and great conversation at the exhibition opening night. There's so much to see and enjoy, from whimsy to thought provoking, to a bit controversial, there is something for everyone. Most of the works will be for sale, or perhaps you can arrange a commission piece from one of our very skilled artists!
The Gala begins at 6:30pm in the lower level gallery (signs will be posted). Handicap accessible entrance on the north side of the building, or enter through the main doors in front. There's plenty of free parking. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at (319) 855-4755 or via email at: email@example.com We look forward to seeing you there!
