Vernon Rickman, An Artful Life
The life and work of Newton-born artist Vernon Rickman is highlighted in “Vernon Rickman, An Artful Life,“ a book by Beverley Olson Buller and published by the Carriage Factory Art Gallery.
“New Horizon,” featuring the work of artist Joseph Loganbill, is now on exhibit at Carriage Factory Art Gallery, 128 E. Sixth St.
Some of Loganbill’s earliest memories have to do with the joy of drawing. Sketching became a natural friend and outlet for his ideas in his youth. Pulled to draw and depict things, he took every art class he could in high school and spent time with his sketchpad trying out new ideas. After majoring in art studies at Bethel College, he spent evening taking classes in multiple media at the Wichita Center for the Arts.
Over the past 15 years, Loganbill has dedicated himself to oil painting. He loves painting outdoors; being in nature and trying to capture the fleeting light and beauty of a unique space.
Works featured in the exhibit, which will be displayed through May 11, are available for purchase.
Thank You... to the 43 founders of Carriage Factory Art Gallery. Their foresight in 1983 to rent space in a former carriage factory and later to become owners of the property as a nonprofit arts organization led to a renewal of appreciation for creative arts in the community. The gallery today provides opportunities for all ages to gather, learn, experience, perform, share, and celebrate the arts. We invite you to visit the gallery and enjoy the beauty of the art and the hospitality of this historic space.
Three of the founders of Carriage Factory Art Gallery were together at a special event in the gallery: Martha Knudsen, Dr. Frances Allen, and Naomi Wenger
