If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, then there was plenty to behold Thursday night as three artist receptions were held throughout the community.
The Martinsen Gallery at Sheridan College hosted the show entitled "Celebrating 41 Years," featuring local artist and adjunct Sheridan College art Instructor Nancy Buening.
Two years shy of teaching for 50 years, Buening has taught over 17,000 students, from ages 3-94 and says it's all about seeing beauty.
Sometimes the art she sees troubles her, but she tries to keep an open mind.
Forty-one years given to teaching at Sheridan College deserves some kind of recognition.
Two artist receptions were held at the Fulmer Public Library. Local self-taught artist Lindell Aurand's show is being held in the Library Inner Circle.
Aurand has always drawn and because of his hemophilia has a lot of down time on his hands. Instead of wasting his talent, he chose to develop it, taking it to the next level.
Les Jayne's exhibit, "Wildlife and Rural Scenes, Art in Multi-Medium is being held on the library mezzanine.
Working in a variety of mediums including tree bark carving, relief carving, pen-and-ink and pencil drawing and watercolor, Jayne tries to maintain his individuality.
Both library exhibits will be on display through September and Buening's exhibit will end October 16th.
