Opinion: Letter to the Editor: Invitation to Visit ArtFest


Seas of Tranquility, by Walt Lawrence

It is that time of year when Great Falls Studios holds its annual Spring ArtFest so please accept this invitation to come out and see what the local art community has to offer.

I will be in my studio at the Artists’ Atelier located in the Village Centre with my ever-growing collection of images of the Great Falls area and even a few from other parts of the country. The Atelier studio spaces and the gallery area will be filled with work.

The attached image, titled Seas of Tranquility, was taken at the Outer Banks which depicts a distant sailboat on a very tranquil sea as an October moon rises in the sky. This summer on July 20 will be the 50 year anniversary when the Apollo 11 astronauts landed on the moon in an area called the Sea of Tranquility. If you are 60 or older, as I am, I’m sure you can remember where they were and who you were with on that day, I certainly will never forget it. I have the image printed on a 20 x 30 canvas.

Please stop by and say hello, I look forward to seeing you.
