VAIL — Have you seen any pink elephants lately? Now is your chance. On a two week rotation schedule, fifteen artists from the Vail Valley Art Guild are displaying their works of art at the Vail Library through June 14.

The world seen through an artist’s eyes can be intriguing. These artists have explored many parts of the world from Colorado to Africa and elsewhere around the globe.

Shows of locals

Through today, VVAG oil painter Linda Zerangue takes viewers to see “Blue Bayou.” Water media artist, Joan Willoughby’s painting, “Team Work,” reminisces on a winter sleigh ride pulled by magnificent draft horses. Acrylic artist Marjory Wilson displays her paintings of Colorado skies.

The second two week exhibit, held through May 30 takes viewers to Africa where Christine Wilhelm was inspired to paint a zebra. Wilhelm, a native of Colombia, but now a local resident, said she loves wild animals … “this painting was a work of joy.” Well known pottery artist, Ann Loper, is showing some unique wall pieces which have a contemporary feel. Landscape, floral and still life paintings will be featured by Chris Sena, Tara Goike and Mio Cirkovic. Willoughby and Zerangue will participate.

A reception for the first two groupings of artist will be held on Sunday from 3 to 5:30 p.m. The public is invited to attend.

The last two weeks of the exhibit, May 31 through June 14, will feature the work of an additional seven local artists including Carol J. Lynn, Terri Allender, Andrea Roth Moore, Sherry Wilson, Amy White and additional paintings by Wilson. And this is where you will get a glimpse of Bobbi Bryson’s pink elephant without becoming inebriated — (this is another painting inspired by wild animals of Africa). The mediums use by the artists, in this two week period, are oil, pastel and watercolor.

A reception for this group of artists will be Sunday, June 1 from 3 to 5:30 p.m. The public is once again invited to attend.

“Art is a way of understanding reality and learning about it,” said Lynn Feiger, founding member and president of the Vail Valley Art Guild. “You spend 100 hours looking at the same scene or object, and it’s amazing how much different your experience will be about what that scene or object actually is. You learn to see differently the longer you paint.”Now is your chance.
