Ligonier Art Walk Recap...

Earlier today was the Ligonier Art Walk.  It was a really fun event with seven participating art venues in the area opening their doors and presenting a wide array of artwork and creative activities.  You can read more about what everyone had planned by CLICKING HERE.  We represented Theodore Bolha, who creates intricate paper-cuttings.

Here's an example of one of his pieces.  He stacks layers of these hand-cut, lace-like pieces of paper to create his scenes.  He also had some new pieces that incorporated found rocks, chalk and his cut paper.  

Below are some snapshots taken during Theodore's demonstration:
We're so thankful for all the people who came out and supported the arts in Ligonier today!  It was really nice to chat with people from all over and hear about their favorite pieces.

The Ligonier Art Walk is a really special event for me, because it connects the community to things that they might not have seen before and opens them up to new ideas and images.  Art has had such a powerful impact on my own life and it's an honor and a pleasure to be a part of this group of art venues that are dedicated to fostering the art scene in our little town and sharing art.

If you couldn't make it out to the art walk, you can still swing by several of the galleries and see the shows that were up.  Theodore's show at Allegory Gallery will be up until January.  Hope you get a chance to stop by and see it in person!  It's amazing!
