‘Concept Show’ at the Gallery

Ever wonder how artists come up with the ideas for their artwork? Was it a photograph, inspirational music or a vision interpreted over and over again until it was physically drawn on paper or sculpted from clay?

To answer that question, Shelby Artists on Main will host a “Concept Show” at 5-9 p.m. Saturday. Artists from the gallery will be on hand to share their creative process, concept-to-completion methods, and answer questions about how inspiration drives the finished product.

Refreshments will be served, and donations are always welcome.

Now a non-profit organization, Shelby Artists on Main is celebrating its ninth year. The Gallery, located at 617 Main Street in Shelbyville, will be open extended hours through Tuesday, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and will feature a special art sale for patrons.
