The Artists’ Workshop is a non-profit organization established in the early 1950’s. Their mission is to encourage visual art through promoting exploration of various mediums at group workshops and showcasing members’ artwork at community events. Any Way the Wind Blows brings together work by but a small fraction of Artists’ Workshop members.
This exhibition embodies the sprit of experimentation and creative expression. Paintings, drawings, mixed media, and block print work decorate the Galleria walls. In addition, a variety of subjects are represented including trees on Cottonwood Island, a blazing forest fire, wheat blown by the wind, and a serene sunset on Summit Lake. The work here stems from both personal experiences and a desire to record places, events and emotions though visual art.
