A new exhibit has claimed the Dryden Museum until December 19. I Remember, a collection of work from seven local area artists and curated and directed by Leah Gardner and Kaylene Rourke showcases a small sampling of the talent Dryden holds.
“There are a lot of talented artists in Dryden that don’t necessarily belong to an art group,” said Rourke, “so we wanted, with this show, to give them a chance to showcase their work, and ultimately bring more people into the museum.”
With opening night corresponding with Midnight Madness, the museum was a full house of interested art enthusiasts who enjoyed speaking with the artists on hand and learning more about their techniques and passions.
Gardner is pleased to be able to exhibit the work of local artists and haralds Dryden as having a very strong art community.
“I’ve always said we have some really talented people in Dryden. It’s nice to showcase their work and support that part of our community.”
The exhibition features the work of Jeannie Cutts, Chris Marchand, Randi Nielsen, Linda Paquin, Ann Pubbicombe, Tina Walsh and Pauline Withers.
