Banners on Main street in Cable...... go check out before August 24th!

Gallery on Main Street
CHARAC is bringing Art to the Streets of Cable!
Twenty-four (24) talented local artists will be featured in a variety of colorful images to brighten up the village streets.  The banners will go up on the utility poles throughout the community the last week of May and will remain through August 24th.
To launch this event, CHARAC is hosting an Opening Reception on May 31 from 5-8 pm at Rivers Eatery in Cable.  There will be art, artists, sponsors, music, and a special menu available that night.  Do join us!
Then all of the original art will be displayed at Rondeau’s throughout the summer.  Just go left as you enter their store through the hardware/housewares section and take your opportunity to see the art that inspired the banners.
A special thanks to the Cable business community. With their generous support, CHARAC and its member artists have helped turn the whole town into a work of art.
The art will also be available, the original and the banner, for you to purchase by bidding online.  The auction will go “live” May 31, after the Opening Reception.

“Bear With It” by Avis Rosenlund, from Springbrook, whose work was chosen as one of the 24 banners this year.

Avis Ann Rosenlund’s first step into the glass world was in the early 1970’s in San Diego, California learning lead and copper foil techniques of making glass panels.   While a teaching member of a Stained Glass club in Fort Worth for Lockheed Martin, she took a variety of fused glass classes at the Las Vegas Glass Expo.  AAR Originals started business in 2000 in Fort Worth, Texas as a way to showcase and sell unique fused glass jewelry that Avis created and later included bowls and plates, replica fused glass buildings, a signature layered cross called “Stav Kirke”, as well as other types of fused glass art pieces.   After her husband Russ’ retirement, they built a log home on a family tree farm that includes a full teaching studio area.  The studio is open by appointment or chance and offers  a variety of group or individual classes.   Avis also dabbles in hand formed clay fish and PMC;  while husband Russ helps with the glass work and adds his own woodworking pieces.
