Art at Allegory Gallery

If you're a local art enthusiast, you're in luck!  We have squeezed a lot of creative things over the next week at Allegory Gallery!

Our featured artist for the Spring 2015 Ligonier Art Walk was Lynne Suprock.  She created a beautiful display of mixed media work spotlighting her enameling and wire-working skills.  Her show recently ended and we thought we would allow people who didn't get a chance to see her work in person to see it online.  If you did see the show and missed out on grabbing your favorite piece, here's your second chance.  We will have a selection of her pieces posted online for 48 Hours!  So hurry!  Don't delay!  CLICK HERE to see Lynne's candy-colored cityscapes.

We had a short space of time between the end of Lynne's show and the start of Joan Tucker's exhibition on the Project Wall.  So we thought we'd give you all a little look ahead at things to come.  We have a show planned later this year featuring the work of Judith Jaidinger.  She is a supremely gifted artist who has been creating wood engraved prints for over 40 years!  Her work has been shown around the world and she's represented in major art meccas like Chicago and London. We feel so lucky to be able to share her work in our small town!  A selection of her work from her upcoming show will be on display for the next few days.  If you can't make it to the gallery in person, CLICK HERE to see some of her amazing prints online.

On Saturday, July 18th from 5PM to 8PM, we will be celebrating the work of Joan Tucker in her exhibition, "Cosmic Communications".  Her show is composed of richly layered abstract paintings.  Make sure to mark your calendars and set a reminder to join us for the reception.  It promises to be a lot of fun!  We will have wine and tasty treats from the new patisserie in town, Warrior King Pastries. This event is FREE and open to the public! So whet your appetite for art and for good food! 

And don't forget!  For the beaders and jewelry-makers, we will also be debuting the treasures in our new Dakota Stones Trunk Show!  They sent an amazing assortment of gemstone strands!
