Find out more about "Walkabout Gallery" project at Buffalo's "Business After Hours" Sept. 16

This was in the September issue of the Johnson County Arts & Humanities Council newsletter:

A "Call for Artists" was published in local media and mailed to more than 50 local artists last spring.

Louise Anderson's oil painting, "Elgin Park," was the first work to be completed for the project, and can be seen on the door panel of the historic Shaver Building on Main Street, home to the Holistic Health Center.

Project Coordinator Dollie Iberlin, who has been meeting with artists and building owners throughout the summer, says, "The selection committee was so pleased to be able to accept all ten artists who applied for the project. The response from the building owners has been great."

Other artists who will install their paintings, cereamic relief, mosaics, sculpture and poetry on downtown buildings this year are Haylee Bolinger, Dave Donahue, Amber Green, Pat Marton, David Romtvedt, Bonnie & David Schlesselman, Susan Sorenson, Becky Spencer and Mary Sue Williams.

Find out more at "Business After Hours" on Thursday, Sept. 16, 5-7 p.m., at Cooley's Images, 28 S. Main Street, Buffalo. Beverages will be provided. Bring light refreshments to share.
