Exhibit features 'Unfinished Works'
WILLISTON -- The James Memorial Art Center is hosting "Unfinished Works by Elaine Keller Qualley" through March 15. The exhibit features works begun in acrylic, watercolor, pastels, oil and pencil.
Local and regional artists are invited to view the works and choose pieces to complete. Completed pieces must be returned to the center by Aug. 15. The James will then hold an exhibition of the completed works and a silent auction, with proceeds to be used for centennial events and continued renovation of the Center Stage.
Keller Qualley began her art career by taking an oil painting class from Jack Stewart in the 1970s. Over the next decade, she attended workshops from numerous artists. She especially enjoyed oil painting workshops taught by Jean Johnson. She loved Johnson's technique and learned to set up and paint a still life. Her garden and fresh fruit markets became inspiration for her still life subject matter, as were photographing old farm buildings and searching for antiques. She also worked in pastels.
Keller Qualley and her husband, Ron, resided in Williston and she taught art in the region. Her unfinished works were donated to the James Memorial Art Center following her death in 2010. She was a member of the Bismarck Arts and Galleries, Badlands Art Association, Prairie Painters Art Club and a former board member of the James Memorial Art Center.
The James Memorial Art Center is located at 621-1st Ave. West in Williston. The gallery is open Tuesdays through Fridays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. The exhibit is free and open to the public. For more information, call 774-3601.
