JULY EXHIBITS: KATHLEEN MOONEY AND PAULA KIESLING

The City of Marquette Arts and Culture Center announces its July LSAA Gallery
exhibition: “Orkney Inspirations – Scotland” by Kathleen Mooney. The 28 acrylic and
water media paintings in this show are abstract landscapes of the islands of Orkney,
Scotland. The art and archeology from the islands of north Atlantic Europe have been the
artist’s principal inspiration for the last two decades. A special feature of this exhibit is
free verse poetry that responds to the World Heritage Neolithic sites of Orkney.
Mooney’s paintings are exhibited in national and international art competitions, cultural
centers and museums.
The SmallWorks Gallery will feature work by Paula Kiesling. Paula Kiesling
incorporates different elements into her pieces that create a tactile, as well as visual,
feature. She is influenced by mythology and a love of nature. Incorporating fiber beads,
wood, stones and other exotic bits and pieces makes her art natural and inspirational.
Both exhibits will be displayed from July 1 to 31 with an artist reception on Wednesday,
July 18 from 3 to 6 p.m. The public is invited to attend and refreshments will be
provided.
The City of Marquette Arts and Culture Center is in the lower level of the Peter White
Public Library. For more information or questions, please contact 228-0472 or email artsculture@
