This afternoon we had a little bit of time to kill as we were waiting for something to be completed at our home. Jeney came up with the idea of stopping by the Deines Cultural Center to check out their exhibits.
We’ve been meaning to stop in here over the last couple of years since we bought our home here in Russell, today provided the perfect opportunity.
In this particular instance, we were the only guests in the gallery. That worked out well, because we were able to take our time and enjoy each particular piece without being in anyone’s way. We also had a very nice conversation with the executive director Shannon Trevethan.
This particular exhibit “At The Lake” features art by Steve Read of Switchgrass Studio. Although not particularly well known, we really enjoyed Steve’s art and ended up buying one of his acrylic on canvas paintings for our home, titled “What time is it?”.
To be clear, none of the photographs do the paintings justice, but here is a sample of the one we bought. More are posted below.
Whether you live here locally or you’re traveling through the area, we definitely recommend this as a must-see place if you’re looking for interesting art.
There are multiple exhibitions scheduled throughout the year and they are even part of the Ad Astra Music Festival every July!
