WEST VALLEY ART MUSEUM FEATURES NEW EXHIBIT FOR MUSEUM GOERS MONTH
The newest exhibit opening Monday, May 19, features the extraordinary etchings of Elaine Rothwell (1926-2011), an American artist of considerable skill in the fine art of printmaking.
Throughout the art of Elaine Rothwell there are playful puns, puzzles and characters from early American history. Many etchings are done in puzzle-like series, examples being “Chess”, “Steps”, “Art History Mysteries” and “Mama” with family references of humor and drama.
May is known as Museum Goers Month in our nation with many institutions showcasing their collections and promotional opportunities. The West Valley Art Museum is a unique gem on the Valley’s arts and cultural scene. Do plan to visit this month, or during the summer to view the Rothwell etchings from WVAM’s extensive international print collection.
Also on view are selections from the Museum’s ethnic dress collection including children’s outfits.
The exhibit continues through the summer in the Peoria City Hall Art Gallery on the first floor at 8401 West Monroe Street, Peoria. The gallery is open, free to the public, on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays from 10 am to 4 pm and Thursdays from noon to 6 pm.
