Tom Bluemlein American Impressionist

Finding inspiration in nature in all of its forms, similar to Claude Monet, Bluemlein captures what a camera cannot. His landscape, waterscape and still life oil paintings are apt counterpoints to "The Great Outdoors" exhibit, also opening Sunday.
Meet the artist and view his work at the opening reception from 2 to 4 p.m. The Bluemlein exhibit runs through July 29.
The Great Outdoors
Now Open Through October 1
Our newest exhibit is a salute to all of those exhilarating activities that we enjoy outside the confines of our homes, schools and offices. Whether we're strolling through the park or running a marathon, paddling a canoe or deep-sea fishing, outdoor activities clear our minds and provide a relaxing escape from day-to-day routines.
