New Creston Valley art on display at chamber and library

Web Lead

Exciting new art is on display at the Creston and District Public Library and the Creston Valley Chamber of Commerce, so head down to feast your eyes.

Art in the Library is showing “Watercolor Friends”, a colorful look at the world through the eyes of Audrey Orosz, Marian Evans (right) and Marge Wiebe. Although all of the art is done in the same medium, the different styles and the variety of subjects, from birds and animals to landscapes of Canada and Mexico, are sure to please the viewers. The show can be seen through May 4 whenever the library is open.

The Art in the Chamber display features “Creston Favorites” with Ute Bachinski, Elaine and Andy Alfoldy, and “Encaustic Treasures” with Carrie Lucas. Wonderful watercolors and pastels from Bachinski, Andy and Elaine will be displayed on the grids in the chamber. Whimsical, charming and peaceful are just some of the words one could use to describe the art you will see. The “Encaustic Treasures” by Lucas are small gems of paintings done in melted wax. Bright colors and abstract designs will delight you and have you looking to “see” what you can see. The Art in the Chamber show is on display through April 25.

These community art displays are sponsored by the Community Arts Council of Creston, the Creston and District Public Library and the Creston Valley Chamber of Commerce. Each exhibit is around eight weeks long and will showcase local artists from Yahk to Riondel. If you would like to see your art displayed at one of these venues, contact Val at 250-855-5772.
