Area artists to display work in All-Member Art Show

Creations from at least 18 to be shown

The Albert Lea Art Center will open its first exhibit of the year on Sunday with its annual All-Member Art Show.

At least 50 artworks from about 18 artists will be on display, said artist Tom Mullen, one of the organizers.

“It’s quite a variety of media and some new faces and some new artwork,” Mullen said. 

The show includes everything from watercolor and acrylic painting to sculpture, ceramics and photography, to name a few.

He estimated there were probably five new artists included.

“I like this show because it gives a chance for local artists to show their artwork,” he said.

He encouraged people to come out and see their friends and neighbors.

In addition to the local artwork, the completed painting of retired Freeborn County District Court Judge Jim Broberg, painted by internationally known artist Rose Frantzen during A Night with Wine and Rose in September, will be on display. Frantzen’s work has been showcased in the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C.

An open house for the All-Member Show will be from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday. The show continues through Feb. 15.

The Art Center is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday at 226 W. Clark St.
