The Wiley Art Center’s July-August show will
feature Rose Brenner, a Lawrence County artist known
for her vibrant landscapes and still life paintings.
The show will open with a public reception on
Friday, July 28 from five to seven p.m.
Rose has only been an artist for a few years, but
the she fell in love with painting the moment she
picked up a brush. This show highlights three
themes: Amazing Skies, Light and Shadow, and
Flowers. She has been working on these themes all
year, and has some wonderful examples.
Rose says her goal with this show is to make good
art affordable. Her skies vary from a rural barn
before a storm, to a bright sunny day, to dark
stormy waters. One thing is for certain—they are
vivid and always glow with light. Rose says, “I
love bringing the rural beauty of the Midwest to
life in my paintings—weaving bright colors into my
work and giving viewers a sense of peace.” Her
Light and Shadow category emphasizes bright light as
it pours through a window, or the moon shining over
a tree line. Her flower paintings are bright and
vibrant. All of Brenner’s paintings are done in oil
and are for sale. She has a popular internet store
on Etsy at http://dld.bz/etsyshop.
The Wiley Art Center is located at 14th and J
Streets in downtown Bedford. Hours are Thursdays and
Fridays 1 to 5 pm and Saturdays 9 am to 1 pm. The
Rose Brenner show will be in place through August
