An evening of fine art

Logansport Art Association starts show Friday

(Continued)

One of the association’s programs is ARTreach, a free service that provides gallery tours and hosts art projects for clients of local organizations like Woodbridge Health Campus and Cardinal Services.

Shelley Langley, a qualified disability professional with Cardinal Services, praised the art association for the programming it makes available to its clients.

“It’s been wonderful,” Langley said of the relationship between Cardinal Center and the art association.

The center’s clients visit the association once a week to create an art project, Langley said.

“It’s not a craft-type thing, they really create some art,” she said. “It’s been a very valuable connection for us to the community and as far as enriching the lives of the people that we serve at Cardinal Services. It’s been a really fulfilling connection and we’re really thankful for the art association and all they’ve done.”

Amy Goodrich, director of Programming at Woodbridge Health Campus, shared a similar sentiment.

“We put a focus on art here because it’s mentally engaging and we love to get involved in the community and see how the community focuses on art,” she said.

A number of awards will be presented at the event, including the Mary Regan Award and Mari Lou Crisman Award, which are provided by the women’s families.

The Virginia Murdock Award is sponsored by the local chapter of the Tri Kappa women’s philanthropic organization. The late Murdock was a member of the association and a prevalent artist in the area, Ellington said.

There will also be judges’ awards for best of show and first and honorable mentions.

More than 30 pieces by last year’s best of show winner, Richard Milles, will be on display in the gallery’s alcove during the show as well as throughout the month of July. The winner of the association’s 2013 Wilmer Flory Scholarship, Alma Reinhart, will also have work on display.
