On Friday, March 10th, beginning at 6:00p.m. as our feature show for March,The Venue will host a reception for a show of oil paintings by Butedma Gonso, covering a wide range of subject matter, from traditional Mongolian motifs to Owen County Farmscapes. What they have in common, besides the Artist, is the display of abundant technical skills and a vivid and dynamic color palate. Butedma met her American husband in Mongolia, and they have lived for the last 10 years in a pristine rural setting in Owen County. “I am enthralled with movement, story telling, and capturing mood. My work reflects my life, whether that is my dreams, my past, present, or future”.
The Venue will serve light refreshments. Our complete array of other gifts and art will also be on display for purchase.
