Marshall County Arts Cooperative to sponsor Lunch with the Arts

The Marshall County Arts Cooperative is hosting another Lunch with the Arts.  The event will be held at the Lee Dam Center for Fine Art, 201 South 9th Street, Friday, March 15, from 11:00 a.m. until 1:30 p.m.

In conjunction with the arts cooperative’s current exhibit at the art center, “ … of big and little … ,” the group is hosting a luncheon for guests.  The exhibit features the work of Judith Scott, Marysville.

“These special luncheons have been really successful,” said Renee Hoffman, a board member for the arts cooperative.  “People have told us that they enjoy the casual atmosphere, and that they appreciate the opportunity to connect with friends for lunch in such a lovely setting.”

The menu for Friday’s luncheon includes egg salad sandwiches, tuna salad sandwiches, chicken salad sandwiches, salads, potato chips, relishes, desserts, and a variety of drinks.  Cost for the meal is $5.00.

“These lunch events have increased our attendance at the art center,” Hoffman explained.  “We’re thrilled to see more and more people come to the center.”

The current exhibit features Scott’s new work and shows the progression from small preparatory studies to large-scale completed work.  The smallest painting in the exhibit is a one-inch drawing encased in a one-inch cube; the largest paintings are 57” x 84”.  Included in the exhibit are paintings of Kansas landscapes that reflect her love of the heartland.

“This exhibit is remarkable,” said Wayne Kruse, the arts cooperative’s executive director.  “There is so much to look at, and the quality of the work is outstanding.  Not only does Judy display some amazing paintings she also has quite an interesting selection of jewelry.  So far the exhibit has gone over very well.”
