Art For Your Spaces: 5th Annual Exhibit
Exhibition Dates: April 10 - May 4, 2010

Original fine art created by award winning artists
Diana Saffo Bono, Ken Farris and Nancy M. Young 

     "Three Artists, Three Friends, Three Styles".  This phrase has become synonymous with the artistic group, Art For Your Spaces. In the Spring of 2005, Artists Diana Saffo Bono, Ken Farris & Nancy M. Young, first met as part of a juried group of twenty artists at the Augusta Haus Cooperative Art Gallery in Augusta, Missouri. By 2006, Diana, Ken & Nancy joined together to become the artist group, Art For your Spaces. The next step they took collectively was to develop a website to detail how as a trio, they encompass many styles and media of art that can truly fill the needs of an individual or business' artistic needs. Each of these award winning artists, brings something unique to experience at their group exhibitions through their individual styles & life experiences.

     Together, Art For Your Spaces creates a powerful exhibit of unique artwork for the viewer. From abstract to traditional fine art, there is something for everyone to enjoy at this exhibition.
