Show will run from December 4 - 30, 2015
The Beloit Fine Arts Incubator is proud to present two accomplished watercolor artists for their December gallery show. Both Deb Shimondle and Pat Roedel are natives of Wisconsin and trained artists matriculating in the UW system. The show opens December 4th with an Artists Reception from 5 pm to 8 pm. The reception is free and gives the public a chance to meet the artists and learn more about their art.
Deb Shimondle is a Realistic painter who shares her own reality through her art. Inspiration can happen at any time and anywhere; she is not limited to one subject matter. Challenge is the key. How can one paint metal, reflections in water or crystal? Her work can be defined as a balance between mastering a technique, expressing an opinion and projecting an emotional reaction. An award winning artist, Shimondle divides her time between Beloit and Florida.
Her work has been displayed in both locations and can be found in both private and public collections.
Pat Roedel is a well known Wisconsin watercolor artist from Madison. Working in watercolor has been a recent love for her. The freshness of the color, the unpredictability of the pigment and the quickness of this painting style helps her create an exciting style of expression. Roedel has won several awards for her art as well as two awards at the Edge of the Rock Plein Air Events in Beloit, Wisconsin.
This year, the opening night of the Gallery show coincides with downtown Beloit’s Holidazzle event. To celebrate Holidazzle, the Beloit Fine Arts Incubator will be offering special complimentary snacks plus several additional artists will be offering their art for sale. The gallery show will continue through December. The Beloit Fine Arts Incubator is open Monday from 10 am to 2 pm; Tuesday through Friday from 10 to 5:30 and Saturday from 10 to 3.
