Artists reception set Sept. 6 for Ginger Kramer and Bernadette Regnier exhibit at ISU Oboler Library

August 19, 2016

POCATELLO – The Idaho State University Eli M. Oboler Library will host a reception for artists Ginger Kramer and Bernadette Regnier on Tuesday, Sept. 6, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the library’s art exhibit area.

This event is free and open to the public.  Participants can meet the artists, visit with others who appreciate art, and enjoy some light refreshment, while viewing the beautiful works of art in the exhibit.

Kramer moved to Idaho Falls from Minnesota in 1967, serving as a teacher here for many years before following her dream to be an artist.  Her work has been widely exhibited through the region and she is a member of the Gallery 12 Artist Group, the local Art Guild, The Art Museum of Eastern Idaho and the Idaho Watercolor Society.

Kramer writes, “Since I create most of my present art work using many kinds of water media and collage materials, I consider myself an experimental artist.  My early paintings were mainly watercolor which I enjoyed doing for many years.  Then it seemed exciting and challenging to incorporate more kinds of papers and different types of paint to create texture and other unique and interesting effects.  This led to doing a more abstract and impressionistic style of art.”

For more information about Kramer, and to purchase her work, please contact her at nak@srv.net  or call (208) 522-8677.

Originally from Colorado, Regnier holds degrees in agriculture and has studied watercolor and acrylic painting, printmaking, fiber arts and figure drawing.  Her interest in nature and work as an agronomist are reflected in her work.  This exhibit includes limited-edition prints and original watercolor paintings.

Of printmaking, Regnier writes: “Printmaking is a thought-provoking process involving inks, printing plates, presses and shapes.  In each print I strive to convey what has captured my interest through the use of light, shapes and color.  The prints in this exhibit are linocuts printed from linoleum plates.  These prints are from small limited editions in which each print is considered an original print as the plate cannot be inked and printed exactly the same resulting in slight differences between pieces.”

For more information on Ms. Regnier and her artwork, please see her website at www.bregnierartstudio.com , send an email to bernadette@nwinet.com, or call (208) 745-5912.  Her work may also be seen at her studio in the Artist’s Studio Gallery of the Willard Arts Center, 496 A Street in Idaho Falls.

This free public exhibit may be viewed through Sept. 30 during the Oboler Library’s open hours; visit the webpage www.isu.edu/library for the library’s hours. The Oboler Library is located on the corner of Ninth Avenue and Martin Luther King, Jr. Way, at 850 S. Ninth Ave. in Pocatello.
