Grand champion artwork that received a purple ribbon at the 2017 Marshall County Fair is on exhibit throughout the month of January at the Lee Dam Center for Fine Art, Marysville. “Purple Ribbon Exhibition” features a collection of award-winning art by eight 4-H members.
A reception to meet the artists will be Thursday, January 11, from 5:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. Refreshments will be served; the public is invited.
“We are lucky to have such a vibrant arts community that continues to flourish,” said Angela Schmale, a board member for the Marshall County Arts Cooperative, the group sponsoring the exhibition. “Each year 4-H participants come up with something new to display and I am always impressed by their artistic workmanship. Some people don’t get to make it to the fairgrounds so we wanted to give an opportunity for these works to be viewed and showcased in a different setting than the norm for 4-H.”
Participating in the exhibit are Dustin Denton, Wesley Denton, and Abigail Steinfort, Wide Awake; Nick Frese, Kayla Glore, Sunflower; Catherine Kee, Work to Win; Maria Mason, Maya Mason, Bremen Hustlers.
The exhibition closes Sunday, January 28. The art center is open Thursdays from 4:00-6:00 p.m.; Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.; and Sundays from 1:00-4:00 p.m.
