NEW Gallery Wall Artist! At the Legacy Center
The Legacy Center Gallery is proud to host the artwork of local artist Don Grott in their next installation. Located on the campus of Queen of All Saints Catholic Church in Michigan City, the Legacy Center serves as a multi-use gathering space for community and parish functions. The Gallery seeks to incorporatePr the parish with the greater arts community.
Don’s interest in oil painting began on what he describes as a “lazy winter Sunday afternoon” in his military Air Force base quarters near Belleville, IL. He says, “I simply decided to try painting and drove to town and bought a canvas, brushes and paint along with a wintery Christmas card (for inspiration).” Since then, Don has painted murals for homes and businesses including every building at an Air Force base in France while stationed there. He even took first place in a regional art show while stationed abroad.
The work shown includes full-size and mini-masterpieces of nature scenes in all seasons, ranging from autumnal hues to winter whites and bring summer colors. Don donates many of his paintings to the fundraising efforts of charitable organizations, such as the Special Olympics.
The public is invited to view Don’s artwork during regular Legacy Center hours, 6 am to 8 pm CST Monday to Thursday, 6 am to 6 pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and 6 am to 3 pm on Sundays. The building is located at 1719 E. Barker Ave. in Michigan City, and visitors should enter through the doors off Esther Street. A special “Meet the Artist” reception will be held on Sunday, October 3 from 8:30 am to noon.
The artwork will be displayed through December 31, 2021, at which time the Gallery will change with a new artist. Questions can be directed to Kadie O’Connor at [email protected].
