The Art Circle will be presenting the show which is curated by Patty Mulligan-Zbylut and her committee: Bill Zbylut, Anthony Sienkiewicz, Elsie Sienkiewicz and Susan Sienkiewicz.

“The Art Circle does art shows twice a year, in the spring and fall,” Curator Patty Mulligan-Zbylut says. “The shows give local artists an opportunity to show their work and network. The artists are amazing; there are so many different styles. And it’s a great time to see art, see beauty — its nourishment for the soul.”

Bloomin’ Art will feature artists’ works in several media including oils, acrylics, pen & ink, mixed media, artisan jewelry, photography, sculpture, woodworking and felting.

“We usually get a great turn-out,” Mulligan-Zbylut says. “All the wine goes, and the food goes, and if those go, that means we had people!”
