Arts IMPACT Welcomes the Work of Arrin Kartel for May and June

Mount Pleasant Arts IMPACT is featuring the work of Arrin Kartel for the months of May and June at their mini art gallery located in the Mount Pleasant Public Library.

Kartel is a painter and illustrator based out of Southeast Iowa. She has been creating art since childhood. Alongside her practice as an artist, Arrin has studied and worked as a graphic designer for over 10 years.

The inspiration for Arrin’s art comes from plants and nature, patterns and color, and warm nostalgic feelings. She specializes in painting colorful, loosely painted landscapes and painterly still life scenes. As an illustrator, she produces imaginative images that are fun and lighthearted.

Arrin has worked with a wide variety of artistic mediums including acrylic paint, oil paint, wax pastels, oil pastels, printmaking, ceramics, and digital illustration.

Samplings of Kartel’s work are being exhibited through the end of June in the Mini Art Gallery located in the Mount Pleasant Public Library and viewable free of charge during regular library hours.

Mount Pleasant Arts IMPACT sponsors the Mini Gallery as an outreach to the residents of Henry County, introducing the public to the many talented artists in the Southeast Iowa area. Individuals interested in purchasing work from our local artists may contact the artists directly to discuss availability of their work.
