Artists from the Eppson Center for Seniors and Laramie Historic Art Guild will have their art on display in a joint showing at the Eppson Center, 1560 N. Third, this month.
An opening reception for the show is scheduled for 1-5 p.m. today in the center’s dining room, where the art is hanging.
Artists who participate in a weekly watercolor class at the Eppson Center have contributed work to the show. Because the class meets Thursdays, they dubbed themselves the Thursday artists, teacher Jeanie
Schlump LeCompte said.
“All but two had never done any watercolors before,” she said of the artists. “Every class was an exploration into different techniques, all with the medium of transparent watercolor.”
LeCompte has been teaching the class for the last couple years and said about 18 artists will have their work on display. Some paintings will be for sale while others will not.
She said the students in the class were open to new ideas and learning new techniques.
“They’ve done an excellent job,” she said. “I’m so proud of these people.”
Anthony Guzzo, president of the Laramie Art Guild, said the exhibit will be on display through Nov. 30. The Laramie Art Guild, formed in 1967, aims to promote fine arts in the Laramie community.
The Eppson Center offers programs to support independent living and enhance quality of life. The center is open from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday.
