Exhibit by painter Joann Shank at By Hand Gallery

10:00 am to 05:30 pm on Sep 28
By Hand Gallery

Joann combines two styles of painting – her love of painting birds and her fascination of creating imaginary landscapes. She says….”Nature has always been my source of inspiration, whether it is with the colors in abstracts or watercolor paintings of local birds and vegetation. In my watercolors I explore the fluidity of watercolor and strive to capture the energy of nature’s ever changing imagery. I also use acrylic paint as a medium for my abstracts and refer to color combinations in nature.”

An Important Message from Bloom Magazine

For the past 14 years, we have been publishing Bloom, a free, bimonthly cultural and lifestyle magazine serving Bloomington, Indiana, and surrounding communities. We have four missions: to support local businesses, local charities, local arts, and diversity. We are an integral part of the fabric of this community.

Like so many small businesses (4 employees), we are facing huge challenges in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope to be able to continue producing the magazine and our website, magbloom.com, but we need your help.
