New artwork on display at Creston library and chamber of commerce

Art knows few boundaries! It speaks to both creator and viewer, young and old, all races and nationalities. Art can take many forms and while some forms may not appeal to everyone most will appeal to someone.

The current community art displays will, hopefully, offer something to appeals to everyone because they are full of variety and excitement.

“Art & Intuition” is what you will find in the display at the Creston Valley Public Library. When you visit the library you will find an exciting exhibit showcasing the art of Cheryl Place and Jennifer Moore from Boswell and Julie Draper from Wynndel. The variety of art from these ladies makes Art in the Library a must-see event. This display of Art in the Library runs until June 28 and can be viewed during library hours.

Art in the Chamber gives you “Art Explosion”, featuring over 20 members of the Creston Art Club. A definite explosion of color, variety, style, texture and media is what this exhibit is all about. While many Creston area residents are familiar with the art of the Creston Art Club, it is always fun to see the new art the members have created. Take your mother, your child or a friend out for an afternoon of art at the Creston Valley Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Centre. Art in the Chamber can be seen during business hours through June 30.

An excerpt from a poem by Cheryl Place fits most artists: “Trusting my instincts, as I incorporate in the work of art experiences from my life.”

These community art displays are sponsored by the Community of Creston Arts Council, the Creston Valley Public Library and the Creston Valley Chamber of Commerce. Each display is about two months long so you will have lots of time to stop in and enjoy the art. If any artists are interested in displaying their work in these venues next year, contact Val at 250-866-5772.
