Art on Park Opening February 10th!
Twin Cities Library's new art program, Art on Park, opens February 10th! The inaugural exhibit features the collection, Rocks and Trees: Acrylics on Canvas, created by Jeannie E. Roberts, a Saint Mary's Arts Administration alum. Join us at 4:00pm for an artist talk, during which Roberts will give a brief insights of the collection and answer questions. Roberts is a trained artist, award winning and published poet, and the owner of JR Creative Studios (www.jrcreative.biz), an advertising, marketing, art, and design firm. Roberts' collection depicts the Norway pines that border her front yard in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. Roberts' rock imagery was inspired by the man-made stone landmark and cairn called an inuksuk (plural inuksuit) used by the Inuit and other peoples of the Arctic region of North America for Communication and directional aids. See the Library's web site for more information on Art on Park's upcoming exhibits. Opening Reception: February 10, 2010 from 4:00-7:00pm Artist talk starts at 4:00pm
