‘Places I Have Been’ exhibit on display at Way Public LibraryWritten by Matt Liasse | | email@example.com
The new “Places I Have Been” exhibit showcases different perspectives, which PRIZM Creative Community founder Annette Jensen was pleased with.
“It was interesting as we took in the entries and people interpreted the subject matter in their own way,” Jensen said. “People are really ingenious when it comes to thinking in your mind about the theme and generally when you have a theme it’s kind of an inspiration prompt for people. … It was really interesting to see how people interpreted the theme.”
The fall exhibit from PRIZM Creative Community will be showcased at Way Public Library, 101 E. Indiana Ave., in Perrysburg. It will be on display until October and features 15 artists.
The show is part of a partnership between the library and PRIZM. There are a number of things planned for the future, including a veteran’s show.
“We are excited to showcase the talent in our area by helping the Way Library to bring some really neat things to the public,” Jensen said. “It’s a wonderful place for the public to enjoy community talent.”
The exhibit will give artists a venue to share their experiences through art, Jensen said.
“Everyone has favorite places that they have been influenced by,” Jensen said. “It could be your own backyard garden. It could be if you have a special memory of your grandfaher’s farm or you could remember that hefty vacation you saved for.”
Different art forms are featured in the show. Artists Lynn Buri, Judy Paschalis and Amy Fell contributed work with fiber, Marcie Reynolds contributed a collection of watercolors and Kate Argow is showing off jewelry designs. There are also a number of mixed media pieces in the show.
“It’s a very eclectic collection,” Jensen said. “It’s a celebration of creativity.”
“Places I have Been” is on display now. An opening reception is planned for 6:30-8 p.m. Sept. 9 in the lower level gallery area. Some of the artists featured will be at the event.
