Rees selected as featured artist this month


Brick Street Gallery’s featured artist will be Dorianne Rees. Her work will be available and featured during the month of December with an opening reception on Friday, Dec. 2, from 5 -7 p.m. with light refreshments.

Dorianne took every art class she could since she was a young girl. Her mother, Janet, is an art teacher certainly helped spark her creativity.

Dorianne primarily works with prisma color markers and pencil. Her work has been described as "wacky" and she likes that. "It's fun to use colors and shapes and to design things in a different way."

Dorianne is originally from Kansas but has called West Liberty home for seven years now. She has other interests besides drawing. She also directs theatre, acts, and enjoys teaching and performing improv.

She would like to thank the community for supporting Brick Street Gallery and local artists and really supporting art in general whatever form that might take.
