Toledo Artists’ Club displaying ‘Reflections’ exhibitionWritten by John Dorsey | | email@example.com
The members of the Toledo Artists’ Club have a lot to reflect on. The club, which has long been an institution in the local arts community, spans more than six decades and a number of locations. Its latest juried exhibition, “Reflections,” is on display through July 23.
“This exhibit offers a nice mix of mediums from paintings to pastels to photography. Our jury looks at presentation, professionalism and pieces that best represent the theme of each show,” said board member Michele Trombley. The club, which has been based on the front grounds of the Toledo Botanical Garden since 1979, offers workshops, classes, events and monthly exhibition opportunities. TAC has 340 members.
“One of the benefits of being a member of the club is just being able to get together with like minded people, to have someone there to bounce things off of, which you can’t really do when you’re just isolated in your studio,” Trombley said.
The exhibition’s Best of Show winner was Tom Sorrell for his piece “Great Falls Tavern.” First place went to Sharon Rapp for “Radiance in the Dark.” Second place went to Tom Sorrell for “Anchor Point Marina.” Third place went to Marsha Huepenbecker for “Serene Reflections.”
TAC and the Toledo Botanical Garden are located at 5403 Elmer Dr. For more information, call (419) 531-4079 or visit www.toledoartistclub.com.
