The Arts Council is pleased to present, "The Color of Change," an exhibition by Catherine Tonning-Popowich. In this colorful and vivid exhibition, Popowich moves away from her popular nature and wildlife representations and explores new territory. She says, "As an artist, I have painted realism for most of my artistic life, but I always felt like something was missing. I wanted to push myself to explore new techniques and mediums."
Join us for an opening reception on Friday, April 6, from 5-7 p.m. at the Arts Council. Come meet the artist and talk to her about her work! Light refreshments will be served.
