For the summer months, our Art at Work program is featuring a variety of artists with a summer-y motif (Carol Pace tells me) including a lot of, well, sea-ish stuff, like fish hooks, and, uh, animals and stuff.
Out front we have a stunning new watercolor of the old (for eight more days) Harrison County Courthouse by Carol Pace to celebrate its rededication as "the" Harrison County Courthouse on June 20, flanked by a pair of new "fish hook" paintings by Jo Ann Imhoff and a sunset landscape by Mary Norvell. The frames on the fish hooks are painted the same as the canvas, and the painting wraps around the side - they're real attention-getters. (To the left is a close-up that will hopefully show this a little better - two are a sort of aqua-blue and a third is deep purple). Also out front is a flamingo and a Neptune by Sally Martin, a floral by Mary Norvell and a floral by Mieko, and a large equestrian collage-type painting by Lou Violette. Down the hall, we've hung on to Bob Metzger's beautiful watercolor of downtown (an office favorite) , and in one of the visiting lawyer offices we have a purple fish hook by Joanne (my favorite of the three) and the original of Carol Pace's old courthouse that we used on our firm's Christmas cards last year. The original plan was for that to stay out front, but we've had such great art to show off lately it has been spending time in a side office.
