‘Fur and Feathers’ exhibit celebrates domestic animals

“Pablo” by Julie Fakler

For a fun finale to the summer, the Lanesboro Arts Gallery in Lanesboro, Minn., is hosting a colorful solo show featuring domestic animal portraits by Faribault, Minn., painter, Julie Fakler. The exhibit opens on Saturday, Aug. 19, with an artist painting demonstration from 2 to 5 p.m., and a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Attendees can enjoy live music by Ann and Andy Lowe, refreshments and goodies from Clara’s Eatery. The show runs until Oct. 15.

Fakler’s vibrant work is created by applying many thin layers of acrylic paint. “Fur and Feathers” will feature more than 20 of her animal portraits. Fakler shares her love for animals through her artwork and is dedicated to capturing the essence of every animal she paints.

Fakler is the current Visual Arts and Education Director at the Paradise Center for the Arts in downtown Faribault. 

The show is sponsored by Inspire(d) Media of Decorah, and is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant. Handicapped accessible and free to the public, the exhibition gallery is located at 103 Parkway Ave N. in Lanesboro. For more information, visit www.lanesboroarts.org.
