  Come and see the art of Carlene Meredith Cogliati on display from September 22 to October 27, 2018.  She will be closing out her exhibit with a meet and greet Artists' Reception being held Saturday, October 27 from 6-8 PM.

  Carlene now lives far out in the coastal hills of Northern California, but she has always considered Iola her hometown.  "The last time I hung art here was when I was in High School, and to come back to The Bowlus, where I was given such inspiration in art, music and theatre, is fabulous!" stated Cogliati. 

  As well as visual art, Carlene has written two musicals and had two children's books published. Her books, As our Baby Grows, a picture book and To Durchhalten, a children's novel, will be available at the Artists' Reception, October 27.


The Mary L. Martin Gallery is located on the lower level of the building's east classroom wing, just adjacent to the Bowlus' main office. Exhibits are FREE and open to the public during the Bowlus' normal office hours, Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.  

We are happy to open the gallery for a private viewing for a club meeting or similar outing. Please contact the Bowlus office at (620) 365-4765 to make an appointment.
