‘Lanesboro Up Close’ features soft pastel and oil pastel paintings by Fred Ginocchio. The Corncuopia Artist Spotlight opens with an artist reception on Saturday, August 31 from 6-8 p.m. and runs through September 29, 2013. The reception and the Spotlight are free and open to the public. A Rochester, Minn. artist, Fred Ginocchio’s vision for this show is to present up close “snap shot” sketches of Lanesboro scenes, with its picturesque down town, bluffs, and Root River. The colorful sketches will comprise a sort of picture album of glimpses of images on Lanesboro’s main street.
The Cornucopia Artist Spotlight serves to highlight the work of selected Juried Sales Gallery artists individually throughout the year. The Spotlight challenges artists to explore new methods and/or subject matter. The name ‘Cornucopia’ lives on in the Artist Spotlight program in honor of Lanesboro Arts Center founding members, and in the spirit of the coop of artists that created the energy for this arts center back in 1992. The Lanesboro Arts Center gallery, at 103 Parkway Ave. N. in Lanesboro, Minnesota, is open seven days a week through October: Mon-Thurs 10-5, Fri-Sat 10-7, Sun 11-4. Lanesboro Arts Center serves as a regional catalyst for artistic excellence and educational development in providing diverse art experiences for people of all ages.
