ArtWalk — Elsie Archer

Elsie writes: “It was a good summer art-wise. This year it was my good fortune to partner with the Olds Museum.

“I certainly appreciated the exposure that the Wellspring ArtWalk gave me. So often summers come up dry, with paintings gathering dust in a closet.

“The Olds Museum staff were so gracious right from the beginning. They went to considerable additional effort to display the original paintings for “The Starfish” during the launching of 2013 ArtWalk.

“All through the summer the staff continued to express appreciation and interest in the work I brought in and went so far as to purchase some of the art themselves. They always made certain the paintings were displayed to their best advantage. I was very grateful for the affirmation and encouragement I received.

“Hoping that all WVANA members had a positive experience also.”
