Local artist ‘draws’ library support
River Falls pen and ink artist Philip Colpitts is showing his artwork for the first time in 33 years in the public library gallery. Colpitts, a self-taught pen and ink artist who worked in commercial art for many years, was present for an opening recpetion Sunday afternoon.
Colpitts sold some of his artwork at the showing, and said he would donate 50% of the profits to the library. Event and Gallery Coordinator Katie Chaffee said the opening reception worked very well with the library’s “Hootennanny” sing along event, also held Sunday afternoon.
Colpitts's show "Precision: Pen & Ink" will be on display in the gallery until Sunday, March 2.
