ART FIRST GALLERY PROUDLY PRESENTS LOCAL ARTIST SALLY RHONE-KUBAREK AS SHE PREMIERES ARTWORK FROM HER NEW CHILDREN’S BOOK MINDELMO
Opening Reception: First Friday, October 2, 2015, 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Exhibit on view Wed., Sept. 30 through Sun., Nov. 1, daily 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
For the month of October, Art First devotes the front “featured” section of the gallery to multi-talented Fredericksburg artist Sally Rhone-Kubarek as she premieres 28 original oil paintings from her new children’s book, Mindelmo. This is her second children’s book. “Mindelmo began life in the late 1980’s when I was asked by an American school teacher in Germany to write a story using a second grade reading list of words,” says Kubarek. Kubarek will also be signing books at the opening of the show on First Friday.
Sally Rhone-Kubarek was born in Bucyrus, Ohio into a military family. As a child, she moved frequently, living in many States and for 3 years in Japan. After college, she lived in various European countries and Morocco. During those years she attended art classes and workshops in Europe and the States. She has exhibited her work in group and solo shows in Germany and Italy and won her first local award in 2008 with a “first” in the “Uniquely Fredericksburg” juried show.
Art First Gallery, located at 824 Caroline Street, is open daily from 11 am – 5 pm. In addition to this month’s featured theme show, you’ll also find a variety of hand-made art displayed by more than twenty-five local artists.
