New on the art scene, the Cottonwood Council Chambers Building at 826 N. Main Street, opens its rotating artist exhibition wall with the work of Helen McLuckie. McLuckie got her artistic start as a self-taught carver and sculptor of wood. In 2006, she developed an interest in painting and settled in with oil pastels as her main medium. She has received a long list of awards for her carvings and paintings at exhibits and juried shows in the Midwest and nationally. The artist’s intentions with her paintings is to evoke a connection with the viewer for a special moment in time. The works in this exhibit are done in oil pastel on different surfaces.

Two featured artists will be present at The Muse Gallery, 735 N Main Street, offering an extended collection of their works, and some in house demonstrations and classes. Both Malou Lentsinis and Joanne Agostinelli’s work capture the light and wonder of the natural world, and the flora and fauna which inhabit them. Leontsinis also tends towards intense monochrome female forms and faces, while Agostinelli’s work depicts the primal elements: Earth and Sky, Fire and Water. Through her masterful use of light, Ms. Agostinelli is able to capture the vivid stillness between moments.
