Help us welcome Abbie Parmele to the Art Center for the month of June!
Artist Abbie Parmele is from Rensselaer, IN and paints in oils as her medium. As a former flight attendant with American Airlines, Abbie is ready to hop on a plane at a moment’s notice and take off in the skies above. With passport and camera in hand, she shoots pictures from an artistic point of view and creates paintings from her photographs in her studio in Rensselaer. Her artistry includes, but is not limited to, oil paintings, inspirational purses, jewelry, and contemporary collages. Much of Abbie’s work is commissioned for private homes and businesses, but we are proud to have her work on display.
Abbie grew up in rural southeast Iowa and moved to Indiana to attend Fort Wayne Art Institute where she graduated as a fine arts major. She has done further studies at Indiana University-Fort Wayne campus also. Abbie’s art has been exhibited in a wide variety of venues including but not limited to Hoosier Art Salon, Columbia Club, Hilbert Circle Theatre, UN Gallery for Contemporary Art, and Martha’s Vineyard Island Art Show.
A reception honoring Abbie will be held on June 14 from 6:00-9:00 pm in the Main Gallery. Please stop by and view this beautiful show and meet the artist!
