Work of local artists on display at Little Pleasures

ORIGINALLY WRITTEN DON RATZLAFF
Sheri Schmidt of rural Marion works on an orginal acrylic during a “Meet the Artist” time Saturday at Little Pleasures coffeehouse in Hillsboro. Schmidt’s work is featured during the month of February in an initial effort to showcase the talents of local artists. Marissa Root, Little Pleasures owner, and Schmidt came up with the idea several weeks ago. “This is a nice outlet,” Root said. “I have walls, so I said let’s put some art up there. Plus, it makes my place look good. Why would I say no to good art?” Schmidt has 25 pieces on display, including several larger ones in the loft above the coffeeshop. Schmidt said she is getting back into her art career after focusing the past several years on raising her young children. Some of her works, which include acrylic, watercolor, pen and ink and pencil, are for display purposes only; prints of most pieces can be viewed and purchased on her Web site: sherischmidt.net. Also on display at Little Pleasures for viewing and purchase are photos taken by Zac Remboldt, a Tabor College student. Other local artists interested in showing their work in the future should contact Root.
