Paintings at La Poste

La Poste’s building itself is a work of art. Built in 1914 as a post office, it has been painstakingly restored.

Update:  This year’s IWS Annual Exhibition in Perry has now ended. See the post “Well-traveled” for a followup!


I’m honored to have two of my paintings in this year’s Iowa Watercolor Society (IWS) Annual Exhibition. Here I’m dropping them off at La Poste in Perry to join the work of artists from across Iowa, in a wide range of styles. A smaller set of these paintings will be chosen for the IWS’s 2019‑2020 Traveling Show which travels to art centers around the state.

IWS members are signing up to paint at La Poste on Thursdays (4 p.m. –8 p.m.) and make the exhibit available for viewing — you can see who’s scheduled on the Painting at La Poste page. Plus, there will be live music and food to complement the visual show — see La Poste’s Facebook page for each week’s musical artist and menu. (The building is open for scheduled events or by appointment.)
