Local artist Angie Reynolds will host an informal chat about her exhibit at Decorah Public Library on Thursday November 8 at 5:30 p.m., in the 2nd floor Mezzanine Gallery. Reynolds’ work will be on display in the Mezzanine until November 19.
Reynolds has been drawing for over seventy years; her work is representational and most often pen and ink or acrylic. Encouraged by her mother, the artist took art classes offered when she was a student in the Decorah school system, several college art courses, and a variety of courses at the University of Alaska in Anchorage. Previous exhibits include a number of student shows hosted by these institutions.
The driving force behind the creation of this exhibit was “Mrs. Murphy” the Newfoundland. When Reynolds’ daughter Carrie had a drawing of Mrs. Murphy framed, she insisted upon rounding up a group of the favorite pieces that her mother has created over the years.
Reynolds holds a music degree from Cornell College in Mt. Vernon, Iowa.
The Decorah Public Library Mezzanine Gallery is open to the public Monday-Thursday 10 am-8 pm, Friday and Saturday 10 am-5 pm, and 1-4 pm on Sunday.
Anyone interested in exhibiting artwork in the Gallery should contact Kristin at 382-3717.
