When Mel Garbark passed away last year there were 90 completed works of art remaining in his studio. Thanks to his daughter Gale Dillon, the representative for his estate, these will be offered through the Icehouse in a special exhibit from May 5 through June 3. It will be an honor for us to stage this event since Mel was such a good friend to the Guild and to many artists throughout the region. We will have the opportunity to pay tribute to this internationally-recognized wildlife artist at a reception to open the exhibit that will be held from 6 until 8pm on Friday, May 5. A page will be set up on our website at icehousearts.org to display the most significant of these works.

The exhibit coincides with the peak of the athletic season with it's biking and running events. We're hoping to have 2-D and 3-D works based on sporting like the example above by Miki, a nationally-known artists (whose works will not be part of our exhibit). These works will be on display during the annual BAM! Kiwanis Metric Century Cycling Tour and the Glory Days festival. They will fill one wall of the gallery while we continue the sale of Mel Garbark's paintings on the opposite wall. There will not be a reception for this exhibition.
Artists are asked to bring works to the gallery between Tuesday, May 30 and Saturday, June 3 for the exhibit.
