Event

Blaney, a Thinking Person’s Artist
On Friday, June 2nd, beginning at 5:00p.m., The Venue is pleased to host an encore exhibition of relief limestone carvings by Sidney Bolan, and oil paintings, drawings and pastels by Mark Blaney.
Sidney Bolan creates limestone carvings, inspired by nature. Her pieces range in size and complexity from simple carved stones to ornate and intricate scenes. All are practically portable, without a truck or crane. They range in price from $50-800. This is a time when you can give yourself, or someone else, a beautiful piece of art that is literally drawn from the heart of Bloomington.
Do not hesitate. In May The Venue has sold more of Sidney's carvings than ever before, and she has worked non-stop to replenish our supply, thus allowing us to take the unprecedented step of featuring her carvings for two months in a row. It is just that unique and just that good.
Paired at The Venue with Sidney for this Gallery is Mark Blaney, an artist who arrived in Bloomington and has made it his home. And it is a perfect fit. Mark’s paintings, pastels and drawings are a treat to the eye and manifest his appreciation of nature and people. Each piece has a back story that invites viewers to use their best thinking, to connect and derive the full import of the piece, or better still, to create their own narrative. A natural for Bloomington.
Our complete collection of fine art and gifts will also be on display for purchase.
Join us!
