Summer Art Show Has New Artists
Regional and local artists will be showcased at the Cass Area Artists Summer Show on July 9.
Jewelry artist Darlene Troyer will be one of several jewelry artists participating in the show. Darlene works with precious metals and fused glass, and has been perfecting techniques that she has learned from master crafts persons and from teaching jewelry classes. She has won numerous awards and her art is currently featured in several Michiana galleries.
Artists from St. Joseph Michigan will include portrait artist Robert Williams and Irina Tikhonova. Irina specializes in seascapes and Robert will do on site portraits, which are especially nice for children. They are new to the Summer Art Show this year, along with noted clay artist Cathy Tapia from Buchanan.
Something to see will be new displays and affordable art in many media, including watercolor, glass, jewelry, digital art, clay, fabric, and oil color. The popular wood turned bowls from Neil Benham and fine wood toys from Bob Knight will return, as well as the clay sculpture of William Becker of Edwardsburg.
Visitors to the show can win free artwork which has been donated by participating artists. Drawings for the free art work will be held throughout the day so that winners can take the artwork with them.
With juried art, affordable prices and new artists, the Cass Area Artists show will showcase a wide range of visual art that will allow patrons to add- to or update their collections with a fresh look and spend an enjoyable day in Cass County.
And, the day in Cass County might include a visit to the historic Bonine House and the Underground Railroad Days which are located in nearby Vandalia on M-60.
The one day Cass Area Artist Summer Show is free and located on the outdoor track of the Lowe Center COA at M-60 and Decatur Road in Cassopolis. It will be open from 10am until 4pm.
