Art Show to Feature Marjorie Mowers from Toulon
posted on: 2008-12-20
Spoon River Landing of downtown Wyoming will host a gallery show highlighting the artwork of Toulon resident Marjorie Mowers. The opening reception will be from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm on Saturday, December 20, 2008. Mrs Mowers' art will remain on display through mid-January. Several of the works will be offered for sale.

Marj Mowers is known regionally for her paintings and etchings of area landscapes and for her still life renditions on wood. This current show is indicative of her new interest in watercolor painting, with several pieces on display. Etchings hand-tinted with watercolor and acrylic paints are also included, along with a few painting on wood.

In addition to painting, Marj also quilts. On display at this show is a sampler quilt of rose pattterns, most of which are her original designs, along with traditional design blocks.

Besides hosting regular art shows, Spoon River Landing sells used books, cards, calendars and local hand-crafted items including jewelry, neelepoint, candles, and glass items. The shop is located at 110 S Seventh St, across from Casey's in downtown Wyoming. For more information, call 309-695-2900
