The Mountain Arts Guild currently has an arts exhibit located on the west wing of the Mary F. Shipper Library’s second floor which includes creations by 12 local artists. These works were showcased during a member show at the beginning of April and will remain on display for the general public through mid-May.
Artists with pieces on display include Emily Woolman, Abby Mensinger, Steven Hanson, Marlee Lynn, Brenda Caldwell, Randy Crane, Linda Vanvranken, Wanda Broadwater, Kalee Wright, Ronald Wright, Dee Humbertson, and Maya Bradshaw. Mediums include drawing, pebble art, oil on canvas, photography, acrylic painting, and 3D pieces.
