Although it is unfortunate for the museum to lose a scheduled exhibit, JMAM Administrator Paula Lisowsky said they were lucky to secure Glasgow’s work until Aug. 15. She said it had also worked out well for Glasgow, who was going to transport her work to the next venue and who now will not have to rent a second truck. Lisowsky said that she was currently trying to book an exhibit to be featured between the end of Glasgow’s work on Aug. 15 and the opening of the annual juried art show on Sept. 14.
Lisowsky said the attendance has been good and that 25 states have been represented in the guest book. People from Vancouver in British Colombia, Canada have signed their names, as have guests from North Carolina, Texas, Illinois, Wyoming, Missouri and Colorado, to name a few.
According to her Web site, www.ellenglasgow.com, Glasgow is a nationally recognized landscape painter, and is owner and director of the Capital Gallery of Contemporary Art in Frankfort. Through the course of her career, she has “traveled extensively across the country, developing a sensitivity for the nation’s coastlines, rivers, marshes, fields, ridges and mountains, all familiar subjects in her paintings. Working in oil, watercolor, acrylic, pastel and monotype techniques, the artist produces both large-scale canvases and small works on paper.”
