The Beginnings of the New Art Gallery
The Brush and Palette Art Club has been around since 1960. The club has hosted many art shows over the years at community events like Galion’s Oktoberfest or places like Kingwood Center. A few months ago, club members agreed it was time for their own gallery. Coordinated by club members Carol Kable, Della Kaple, Diane Bell, Mo Taylor and many others the Brush and Palette Art Gallery was born.
You must be a member of the art club to display works in the art gallery’s co-op space, but coordinators plan to showcase other groups in special art showings like “The Merry Month of May” Art Show. Currently, in the works, is a June showing of the Crawford County Arts Council.
Della Kaple, artist, club Newsletter Chairperson, and gallery volunteer, wants the community to know “this is not an exclusive club”. She encourages anyone to stop by the gallery and ask about becoming a member. “The mission of the Brush and Palette Art Club,” said Carol Kable, club Publicity Chairperson, “is to promote and encourage the enjoyment of art in the community.”
Paintings, Portraits, Sculpture, Pottery, and More
The Gallery plans to offer classes by club members which will cover many types of artwork, such as jewelry, sculpture, painting, fiber art, and pottery. If you are interested in art classes, stop by the art gallery or call them at 419-468-2944 to find out more. The gallery’s art shows and art classes will be announced in area papers like Galion, Crestline, and the Mansfield News Journal.
