local artist Edie Abnet. It was a grand turnout, with lots of oohs and ahs
for Edie's magnificent watercolor/pastel paintings. Birds, tulips, horses
and daffodils graced the gallery and we had fun toasting Edie's work with
our beautiful, new stemware! Reaction was very positive and glowing for
Edie's new work. Her peonies and swans were especially well received as
these subjects were totally new additions. Edie circulated all evening among
the guests as many were collectors and very anxious to talk with her.
Edie's art is reminiscent of Marc Chagall with her images floating in space,
and the whimsical nature of them. Her mixture of watercolor outlined in
pastel is distinctive and instantly recognizable. Edie was recently honored
by winning the national award for Outstanding Poster of 2008 for her image
of the State Fair.
Art Resources Gallery, Edina hosts artist events and receptions throughout
