Alex Amble Gravdahl and Becky Amble have artwork on display at the fifth annual Wildwood Library Community Art Show. The exhibit runs Oct. 1-31 at the Wildwood Library in Mahtomedi.

The show is open to artists over the age of 14. All types of art are welcome — paintings, photographs, mixed-media, 3D art, sculpture and more.

"We are happy to have both Alex and Becky participate in this show. They are both such accomplished artists and they are the only mother and son team participating. That is rather unusual," said show coordinator, Amy Zeuli.

Amble's five pieces of work in the exhibit consist of two watercolors, one acrylic, one oil and one mixed-media painting. The two watercolors are: "Northern Lights" and "Jesus, Crown of Thorns," the acrylic is "Mount Hope," the oil is "Peace Lake" and the mixed media is "God Shaped Whole." All are for sale.

Amble Gravdahl's art consists of three photographs and one crayon piece. The crayon piece is "Old Man River" and the photographs are "Lombard Street" in sepia, "Butterfly Beauty" in full color and "Stare Wonder" in sepia. All are for sale.

Amble works in various media, including watercolor, acrylic and oil. She paints primarily landscapes, nature scenes and still life. She also paints personal angels for people which are one-of-a-kind and designed specifically for each person. She also does photography of landscapes and nature; and fused glass, including functional and art-fused glass, and jewelry.

"I love color and various styles of art so that is reflected in my eclectic style which often includes bright colors," Amble said.

Both are members of various art groups including Artists of Woodbury which is made up of multimedia artists from the Woodbury area. Artists create original work in a variety of mediums.
