When Petr Grigorev launched his professional photo framing and matting a year ago, he had lots of creative ideas for expanding his businesses and bringing new arts and cultural attractions to Great Bend area residents. Petr’s Frame House is excited to continue its Artist Spotlight series on Friday, January 25th starting at 6:30 p.m. “Each month or so, I plan to host an open house event highlighting local artists’ work,” says owner Petr Grigorev. “Customers will be able to come in and browse the art, mingle with the artists, and enjoy free wine and appetizers.”The three artists being featured during the January open house will be:DOLORES BAKER - As a Kansas prairie girl, she grew up on a wheat farm, graduating from Coldwater High School and later Kansas State University and Fort Hays State University. After retiring from teaching, Dolores wrote poetry as an artistic outlet. She found her interest in pottery while attending Bill Forst's BCC ceramics workshop led by Esther Maher. Many of her pieces resulted from combining several techniques. Most of the art has been influenced by nature, which indicates her origin as a "Kansas Prairie Girl."SCOTT LOWELL - Scott Lowell, Nee Scott Andrew Thein, recently moved to Great Bend from New York. As a child, his work mainly was done in oil. But in recent years, he had to adapt his techniques to a new lifestyle. Using color pencil, razor blade, and an eraser, he tries to represent places that had a great impact on his life.JOHN MAKINGS - John's interest in music and rhythm began as a child growing up in Atwood, Kansas. There he sang in church and school choirs, and played in the school band. John also participated in a week-long journey with over 400 other spirits from around the globe led by spiritual leader Deepak Chopra.During the open house, customers can also register for door prize drawings. Petr’s Frame House specializes in custom framing and matting of photography and two-dimensional art.
