Women's Art Exhibition, "I am Woman," show opens on Aug. 15, 2008
woman1.jpgAn exhibit featuring women artists will open Aug. 15 at The Next
Picture Show, 113 W. First St. The "I Am Woman" show, which runs through
Sept. 16, will include artwork depicting women or objects related to women.
"When we put our calendar together each year, we try to work in some new
concepts. With this show, we wanted to feature work with themes ranging from
jobs and childbearing to humor and friendships and much more," said Bonnie
Kime, executive director of the gallery. "The art runs the spectrum from paintings
in all mediums, photography, textiles/fiber, printmaking, graphic illustration,
drawing and mixed media." Artist Raphael Iaccarino will judge the show. He is an
internationally known artist whose vivid watercolors are inspired by the Costa
Rican rain forests and jungles. Iaccarino, whose work is exhibited in public and
private collections worldwide, has spent years observing the primary subject of
his inspiring work.

Art Created LIVE for "Art for Art's Sake" Fundraiser

Watch gifted artists create art before your eyes at Art For Art's Sake, an event to support The
Next Picture Show, a non-profit fine arts community center serving the Rock River Valley.

The event will be held from 6 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Feb. 23 on the first floor of KSB's
Commerce Towers, 215 E. First St. The public will be able to watch some 35 artists finish
their pieces, which will be auctioned off beginning at 8 p.m. All proceeds will benefit The
Next Picture Show.

"A lot of local favorites will be painting for this event, so there will be many recognizable
names. It's not every day you can get a glimpse at their creative process," Kime said,
adding that the gallery is pleased with the number of artists who have volunteered to
participate, as well as sponsorships from local businesses.

The evening will include live music by Flying Fish (Todd Lorenc and Jeff Kagay), heavy hors
d'oeuvres, wine, beer and soft drinks.

Tickets are $35 per person, and are available at The Next Picture Show, 113 W. First St.;
The Dixon Chamber of Commerce, 101 W. Second St., Suite 301; and the Dixon Welcome
Center, 106 W. River St
