Art in Ames
Downtown Ames was the scene for two art exhibitions last night. At Design on Main, Sodam Lee opened an exhibit titled “The Impact of Cultural Environment on Human Life.” Lee, who came to Iowa from Seoul, South Korea, to study art, is a graduate student in integrated visual arts at Iowa State University. She received the 2013 Des Moines Arts Festival Emerging Artist Award.
The exhibition at Design on Main (203 Main Street) runs through Friday, Jan. 30.
Just up the street at the Octagon Center for the Arts, a large crowd gathered for the opening of the 47th Clay, Fiber, Paper, Glass, Metal, Wood annual all-media exhibition. Juror Pauline Verbeek-Cowart of the Kansas City Art Institute chose 65 diverse art works from a pool of 323 entries.
The exhibit continues through April 4 in the Octagon Center’s main gallery. The Octagon is located at 427 Douglas Avenue.
