Date of art show opening changed

The date for the “Music in the Gallery” open house to kick off the Fine Line Art Gallery’s “Think Green” exhibition has been pushed back one day to April 5.
The change was made in order to avoid conflicting with a concert in International Falls on April 4.
Tickets for the event, which will feature refreshments and music courtesy of the Borderland Ensemble, will go on sale in March. They’ll cost $10 each.
Meanwhile, Fine Line member Jean Richards said yesterday that a few pieces already have come in for the annual spring art show—and she knows of about 10 more that will be entered for sure at this point in time.
“We always have 20 or 30 at least,” she noted.
The deadline for artists to submit their work—which may be in any medium (watercolour, oil, stained glass, sculpture, etc.)—is March 31 so gallery staff have time to set up the exhibition, which will run throughout April.
The cost to enter is $10 (artists are limited to two works each). If the artist so desires, their piece(s) can be for sale.
Artists wanting to enter their work should pick up an entry form at the Fine Line Art Gallery (529 Mowat Ave.)
For those who might want to create something for the art show, but don’t know where to start, “Think Green” also will be the theme of the Fine Line Art Gallery’s next workshop in its monthly series.
The workshop will focus on painting and making art with recyclables.
While this series of workshops is intended to run on the last Thursday of each month, this month’s may end up being held during the first week of March because the instructor may be out of town Feb. 28.
It is known, however, that the workshop will run from 6-9 p.m. and cost $15 (all materials are included).
