The Michael J. Malone Douglas County Law Library maintains gallery space for local artists to display their original work. Exhibitions for individual artists usually last for two months. Information on current and future exhibitions is below. Information on how to exhibit in the Gallery is at the bottom of this page.


Current Exhibition:

April/May 2016 -- Paintings by Joanna Ward.

Artist's Statement:

While earning a degree in Education at Oklahoma College of liberal Arts and Science, Joanna took a few art classes. Later, after marriage and starting a family she earned a second degree at The University of Kansas. While perusing her degree in education in order to teach in Kansas, Joanna again took art classes.

After retiring from the school system in Lawrence, Kansas, she revived her interest in art and took several art classes at the Senior Center in Lawrence. Local artists taught these classes.

Currently she enjoys working with a group at the Senior Center and this group is called "The Downtown Tuesday Painters." The work of this group is primarily realistic.

Joanna works mostly in Acrylics and water colors, however, occasionally uses oils and pastels. Painting has become the focus of her retirement years and she achieves great joy in the creative process.

All of the pieces in the exhibit are for sale from Mrs. Ward.
