Art Show and Spring Concert at RCS

May is always a busy time and change is in the air.  To add to that excitement, we have an Art Show, Spring Concert and Book Fair all at the beginning of May at Ridgeway Community School.

    Zinnias inspired by artist Clementine Hunter by 4th & 5th grade artists

    Cardinals, turtles, Pete the cats by 1st Grade Artists

     Mixed art by Kindergarten artists

    The song, "Imagine," by John Lennon inspired this art by 2nd and 3rd grade artists.

One song in the Spring Concert had sign language done by three fifth grade students, Kayleigh, Naser and Payton with  them wearing white gloves and a black light illuminated their gestures. Kinders backs in the foreground quite enthralled.

The Art of Fine Furniture Goes to Rochester, Minnesota

Bird Cabinet by Linda Sue Eastman 

Join artists and friends for an opening reception of the Art of Fine Furniture in Rochester, Minnesota,  on August 19 at 1-3pm at Cascade Meadow Wetlands and Environmental Science Center, 2900 19th St. NW, Rochester. 

"The Art of Fine Furniture," an exhibit of studio furniture creations by artists from Minnesota and Wisconsin, which has been showing at the Winona History Center through the summer 2017 and will open Saturday, August 19th at Cascade Meadow Wetlands and Environmental Science Center, 2900 19th St. NW, Rochester.  Additional fine art will be part of this show, according to Jamie Schell.

It was a bit of synchronicity that I got to see this show--it was extended one week.  And just as I was looking, my friend, Mary Alice came by and told me that I could open the doors on the jewelry cases.  Oh, how amazing to see all the intricacy that Mark Laub used with his design.

I appreciate  his statement, "Once inside, this piece reaffirms that, as in all life, true beauty lies within."   

This show is filled with true beauty.  I have great appreciation for seeing all of this fine art.  Thank you Jamie Schell and all of the artists in this show.

This beautiful wood piece is created to intrigue the eye and then to explore deeper.  The flower top spins upward to reveal the mosaic inside.

And looking closer at the bottom, I find another treasure.

Just a couple more days in Winona, Minnesota at the History Center then the show goes to Rochester, Minnesota.  Hope you take a look.

Art Show at Ridgeway Community School 2015

Every year, Ridgeway Community School has an art show to showcase the work that the children in Kindergarten through Grade 5 have created over the year.  Art Show opened May 6 and continues through May 28th.  Art fills the halls, the library, the gymnasium and the art room.  The art is bright and colorful and happy. These are the bright faces of Ridgeway Community School hanging in the library.

The 1st Grade created pandas, cows, pigs, and sheep with chalk pastels, tempera paints, oil pastels and watercolors.

The second and third grade art was Splat the Cat, foxes, and sunglasses portraits.

The fourth and fifth grade students created one point perspective,  value studies from light to dark in one color, and an artwork inspired by Friedens Hundertwasser.

 Lots of art in the halls.
