"What If" Exhibit


"Lights of Las Vegas"

"Dance" and "Lights of Las Vegas" make their public debut tomorrow at the opening of Pend Orielle Arts Council's exhibit, "What If."  From POAC's press release:

The opening reception for the Pend Oreille Arts Council's newest art exhibit will be held Friday, Sept. 24, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the POAC Gallery at the Power House, 120 Lake Street in Sandpoint. The 8th annual show of its kind, "What if…" exhibits artwork created by over 40 artists in this area who are all members of the Pend Oreille Arts Council (POAC).
"This show is always a community favorite because it truly showcases the talent and creativity of our local member artists," says Joanie Renkert, show coordinator and POAC board member. "With 'What if…' as the theme, we encouraged the artists to finish that sentence - with their artwork. The work is so varied and imaginative, there is something for everyone and every taste."

This is an excellent opportunity to view the breadth of artwork made by artists in our community. An array of works including paintings, sculpture, photography, mosaic and pottery will be exhibited. Artists from Sandpoint, Sagle, Clark Fork, Bonners Ferry, Priest River and other neighboring communities will participate.

The opening reception is free and the public is encouraged to attend. "What if…" will remain on display through November 26. For more information, contact POAC at 208-263-6139 or visit

I dropped off my entries yesterday and they immediately hung them, pretty much the same spot as my work was hung in the last exhibit - a very good spot.  Because these two have similar colorings and use some of the same fabrics, they look quite good together, and the natural lighting really sets them off in a way I don't see in my studio.  One of the helpers commented on how the light zigzags in Las Vegas just jump out, and indeed they do.  I'm happy and looking forward to the reception tomorrow night.  If you manage to make it, please look for me and say hello!

Thanks, Deborah. It did go well, but I didn't get any pictures that night. Hoping to get back to the exhibit this week so I can get some shots to share.
