The Shiawassee Arts Center is set to open a new exhibit featuring the works of Alex Klinkoski of Owosso and artists representing the Mid Michigan Art Guild and the Shiawassee Artists’ Guild. The exhibit, which opens June 26 and will run through August 5, is generously sponsored by David Harrelson. The public is welcome to attend the opening reception to enjoy good food and drinks with the artists on Sunday, July 1 from 2-4pm. Members will be able to receive 20% off one featured artist item during the opening reception only.
Art has always been a part of Owosso artist Alex Klinkoski’s life. He studied both Commercial and Fine Art in college. He made a career of Commercial art producing signs for businesses throughout Michigan since opening The Sign Gallery, in 1979. His work in print media (lithograph, etching, screen and relief prints) is what will be on display at SAC. This is Alex’s first art exhibit.
The Shiawassee Artists’ Guild shares a close association with SAC, where a themed exhibit of the group is featured every year highlighting each member’s area of artistic expertise. This year’s theme is “Anything Goes”. The guild is a group of mid-Michigan artists working in varied art media: painting in oils, acrylics, watercolors and pastels, drawing, pen & ink, printmaking, pottery and ceramic sculpture, jewelry making & collage – the list goes on and on.
Fifty artist members of the Mid-Michigan Art Guild will have work on display during this exhibit. The Mid Michigan Art Guild was founded June 13, 1951, to promote art instruction, provide exhibitions, and create social events for its members. It continues to provide information about the creation, display, and sale of fine art and photography, and encourages artists in all of Michigan in the expression, appreciation, and enjoyment of art.
