New art exhibits around town


The Oliver Sagebrushers are mounting a new show this month at Medici’s. The theme is Abstract Art.  This art form, not being as easy as it would appear, was recently demystified to the Sagebrushers under the tutelage of Tara Hovanes in a 2-day workshop.  Club members came up with some excellent examples and are eager to show their works along with Tara, who will be the Featured Artist. The show runs from mid March to the end of April.  All the pieces for your viewing pleasure, while enjoying a great Medici cappuccino, are for sale.  It should be noted there won’t be an Opening Reception for this show.

oksunjbNews blog publisher Jack Bennest has also opened his Oliver Daily News office space at 6237 Main Street to include a new gallery this spring. The “Dodge” building is currently home to the S.O Chamber of Commerce, the S.O. Immigrant and Community Services office, and Edward Jones.  The building boasts some great wall space.

“Most of the walls at “the Gallery” are full and interest is high to hang fine art and photography,” says Jack. “We will say “drop in” once all the artists have agreed on their schedule.”

The public can expect a formal opening later in March. Contact jackbennest @ for more information.
