…rain cats and dogs…and other critters at the Market Street Art Spot this month! The “Animal Kingdom” exhibit opened on Friday, April 8th, with new and long-standing artist friends participating in the group show (Cheri Bell, Laura Donnelly, Joan Henninger, Don Jeffrey, Sean Johnson, Judi Longacre, Priscilla Sally Lytle, Erin T. Mulligan, Michelle Mulligan, Lori Perry, Anna Rather, Judith Singer, Steve Shonk). Rock, Salt and Nails Band from Alliance was on hand providing their folksy sound for the entertainment of all present. The evening was sponsored by the Village of Minerva. If you haven’t yet, be sure to stop in during gallery hours before the show closes on May 7th.
Lynda Rimke’s lively watercolor paintings reveal her sensitivity to color in natural surroundings. One is quickly drawn into the scenery and encouraged to soak in all its loveliness. Rimke’s artwork is on exhibit at the MSAS now through Saturday, December 5th.
On Friday, April 12th, the Market Street Art Spot blossomed with warmth as visitors came to view the wonderfully colorful works of Isabel Zaldivar. On the keyboard, Kathy Reichenberger provided a perfect tonal backdrop for the evening. With tasty temptations on the refreshment table *(Joan’s scrumtuous dip recipe posted below), a great time was enjoyed by all who stopped by. MSAS sincerely appreciates this month’s sponsor, Martin Pallet, Inc.

As Featured Artist at the Market Street Art Spot in March, watercolorist, Rudy Amatangelo provided patrons with plentiful paintings over which to peruse – most of them quiet landscapes depicting scenes into which you might feel led to wander. Providing lively music for the evening, Jeffrey “JT” Teis and Dave Krajcik, warmed up the crowd of those who came out to enjoy the exhibit. If you missed it, you’ll have until Saturday, April 6th to view the wonderful landscapes of one of the area’s most influential artists, Mr. Rudy Amatangelo.
