VANDALIA — Rusty Harden, local artist and author, is exhibiting her original illustrations from her book The Darkling Sky at the Vandalia Municipal Building through the end of September.
Rusty Harden, of the Rusty Harden Art Studio in Tipp City, Ohio, is an artist, instructor, mentor, and published author. She has devoted her life to the unpredictable beauty of creativity. Her diverse body of work is not controlled by a constantly changing tide of outside influences but by her vision that art is a celebrated and empowering force.
Her book, The Darkling Sky, combines these inventive energies in art and literature to produce a series of work that uncovers the dynamics of imagination.
The illustrations are part of her Bibilot Series and available on Amazon.
“Each one begins with a train of thought. Born of my meditative process, an unexpected image emerges.”
The exhibit is open to the public, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 330 James Bohanan Drive, Vandalia, Ohio.
