Riverside Art Gallery now open in Rock Creek

An Art Walk sponsored by the Riverside Artists included a grand opening of the Riverside Gallery at Kettle River Woodcrafts

Jenny Fletcher demonstrated pastel techniques at the Trading Post in Rock Creek. The Art Walk was sponsored by the Riverside Artists and included a grand opening of their gallery wall at Kettle River Woodcrafts

The Riverside Art Gallery was officially opened on Saturday, Aug. 3 during the 2013 Rock Creek Art Walk.

“This is something that Rock Creek has needed for many, many years and thanks to the McDonald family and Kettle River Woodcraft, it has come into being,” said Ann Rexin.

During the Art Walk the Riverside Artists placed fish paintings at businesses throughout the community that were awarded by drawing to those visiting the exhibits.

Winners were Jane Henry, Callie Anderson, Tammy Best, Pat Pownall, Lane Reay, Farron McDonald, Alec Brarbar, Tina Hesketh, Deb Tisltra, Jade Fossen, and Tom Haines. The winner of the gallery door prize, a Terry Jackson porcelain vase, was M. Wylie.

The gallery will continue to display local artists, with the artwork changing frequently. “We invite you to drop by and say hi,” said Rexin. “Workshops will be advertised and a sign up sheet left at the gallery. Everyone is welcome.”
