Central Square in Glenwood is currently hosting an art exhibit in the 2nd floor art gallery, featuring the acrylics and oil paintings of Nory McNelis from Starbuck.

Although she used to paint with mostly acrylics, in 2010, McNelis was awarded a Lake Region Arts Council McKnight Grant to purchase oil paints. She has been using oils ever since, sometimes painting onsite and other times from reference photos.

Also on display are framed photographs taken by JoAnn Boorman, a recipient of a Lake Region Arts Council's Small Grant. Boorman's photos capture the essence of Pope County.

There will be a special reception for the artists on Friday, August 17 from 5 to 7 p.m. preceding the Prudence Johnson concert. Refreshments will be served. Everyone is invited to meet the artists and enjoy McNelis' paintings and Boorman's photos.

For more information, contact McNelis at, Boorman at or Central Square at (320) 634-0400.
