New Exhibit Opens Friday At Beaver Dam Arts Center

(Beaver Dam) An upcoming exhibit at the Dodge County Center for the Arts will feature artwork from a longtime volunteer with the organization. Visitors will be able to see watercolor, acrylic, pastels and alcohol ink artwork from Judy Beyer. During a recent WBEV Community Comment, Beyer explained what drew her to painting with watercolors. She says she likes the way the medium flows and once a person gets used to it the style is to manipulate how they want.

Several pieces of artwork from the book “My Story Wall” which Beyer illustrated will be on display during the exhibit. Beyer says the book helps those in reminiscent therapy. She says the book has spaces to jot down notes and images a person can hang on the wall to help them remember important moments and people.

Copies of “My Story Wall” will be available for purchase during the exhibit which begins this Friday (October 4th) and will be open Thursdays and Fridays from 3pm to 6pm, Saturdays from 10am to 6pm and Sundays from noon until 4pm through November 8th. Also beginning this Friday, is the Community Art Project where members of the community could utilize any art medium on a six-by-six-inch canvas.
