Carolyn Owen Sommer is a name many in the Springfield arts community will know. Her work is part of a new exhibition called 'Paperworks' opening at the Hoogland Center for the Arts, in the SAA Collective Gallery. The reception is Friday night from 5 to 7, it is free and open to the public. Owen Sommer's pieces will consist of a series of images depicting women and landscapes, they combine watercolor and collage. Artist Teri Zee will have 3D whimsically clothed birds on display, and Joan Burmeister's colorful pieces will also be included. The exhibition will be up through March 1st. We spoke with Owen Sommer to find out more about her experience as an artist in the central Illinois area, and her forth-coming show and exhibition:
