Arts commission says thanks with reception, exhibit

From local sources

JASPER — The Jasper Community Arts Commission will celebrate the annual holiday exhibit of artwork by its Visual Arts Committee members with a public reception from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday at Krempp Gallery. The Visual Arts Committee is comprised of a broad spectrum of area volunteers and includes working artists, teachers, and interested patrons.  

The annual holiday reception also serves as a thank you and recognition to all the volunteers, patrons and community supporters for the arts in Jasper.  The facility and programs serve thousands of people in the area.  More than 150 volunteers devote countless hours helping to make the performances, in-school shows and gallery exhibits and other events happen.  This year, the Arts Department recorded over 2,000 volunteer hours in all areas. The Jasper Arts Center also received the support of individuals and businesses, both in funding and material donations, which helps to stretch the budget.  We are truly grateful for this wonderful community support and this is our small way of thanking everyone.

Members of the Visual Arts Committee, some of whom will be exhibiting this year are: Linda Kahle, Myra Schuetter, Trish Mehringer, Laura Pommier, Barb McCullough, Bill Whorrall, Diane Wininger, Tom Schum, LaVonne Tisdal, Curt Uebelhor, Jennifer Wohlberg, Kit Miracle, Emily Colucci, and Erin Stenftenagel.

Refreshments and holiday music by Swallow Tale will be provided at Friday’s reception. Wine will be available for purchase from Scout Mountain Winery. Hors d’oeuvres will be provided by Catering by Meyer, Huntingburg. The event is free and open to the public.  

Krempp Gallery, located in the Jasper Arts Center adjacent to the VUJC campus, is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, until 7 p.m. Thursdays and  from noon to 3 p.m. Sundays. School groups, clubs, and students are welcome.
