The Wyoming Area Creative Arts Community will host the opening for the sixth annual exhibition of artistic photography titled “That’s What Eye Saw” at the Hallberg Center for the Arts in Wyoming on Jan. 23 through Feb. 15.
This art exhibit attracts photographers from across the region who show how they see the world through the lens of a camera. From more traditional landscapes to the abstract, there’s always something for everyone to appreciate at this beautiful exhibit.
The opening for “That’s What Eye Saw” will take place from 4-8 p.m. on Jan. 23. Complimentary refreshments (with coffee compliments of Evergreen Coffeehouse) will be served as visitors get an opportunity to mingle with and meet the artists.
Visitors will also be invited to participate in voting for People’s Choice awards in the exhibit. “That’s What Eye Saw” is sponsored in full by Peter Follese of National Insurance Brokers located in Forest Lake.
Artwork from the Forest Lake Schools will also be on display at the Center’s Underground Gallery. The Forest Lake Ranger Review Art Show will have their reception from 4-8 p.m. on Jan. 24 with snacks being served; the show runs through Feb. 15.
