The Fist Stage Gallery in Virginia, MN Presents: “Open Water” May 3 – May 26, 2012 6th Annual Exhibition
A juried exhibit with jurors Mary Erickson and Richard Saukko, celebrating the onset of our summer recreation season featuring works from 17 selected artists in the northeastern Minnesota region.
Opening night reception for the 6th Annual Open Water exhibit at the Lyric Center for the Arts in Virginia, Minnesota was held on Thursday, May 3rd and dispute the rain and iffy weather, had a great turn out!
Here are a few more pictures taken of the event:
I want to personally thank jurors Mary Erickson and Richard Saukko for selecting my piece, “Swimmin’ With the Fishes” to be in this first juried presentation of the Open Water exhibit. I participated in each of the other five years, but was especially pleased to be selected for this juried show.
Thanks to Mary Mcreynolds Pellinen and the staff at the Lyric Center for the Arts and to Silver Creek Liquor who sponsored the reception and wine tasting, it was a delightful evening all around.
