Stop by and visit us in January. While you are here, ask for a tour of our Stanton Gallery now on display Blue Marbles” by Sioux Center Textile Artist Joanne Alberda. “This exhibition is a collection of one of my favorite themes, the circle. It makes reference to a number of different subjects, but most often to the planets of our solar system. Photographs of the earth from space sometimes appear as beautiful blue marbles. In my work I wrestle with ideas such as time, space, and motion.”
Also in our Hanson Window Shop Gallery, the 2014 Salute to Agriculture.
