Artists of the Rim Gallery
Spend First Friday, Oct. 5 at the Artists of the Rim Gallery on Main Street. The gallery will be showcasing its new artist and member, Carol Kane.
Kane is an East Coast native and earned her bachelor’s degree in fine arts from Ohio Wesleyan University, then moved west where she fell in love with the wide open sky, peaceful deserts and majestic mountains which are reflected in her masterful paintings, impressionistic landscapes and Native American figures.
Artist aficionados may remember Alan and Carole Snyder. They were active members of the gallery and will be rejoining it in October and will be highlighted as featured artists in November.
Please plan to stop by the gallery from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., Friday, Oct. 5, 408 W. Main St. Carol Kane will be happy to discuss her art, and both Carole and Allen will be there to talk about their extensive travels.
Please plan to stop in on First Friday and talk “art” with the gallery’s members.
