MENOMINEE — The two-person art show, featuring works by Betsy Bradley and Robert “Bob” Pazdera, is open at the Spies Public Library gallery. Pazdera was a long-time member of the Menominee Area Arts Council (MAAC) before his death. Both he and Bradley are self-taught artists.

Pazdera’s art is classified as regional, with many local subjects done in a realistic style.

Bradley’s work on a series of semi-abstract cloud studies could be compared to series of paintings by Claude Monet. Monet is the French impressionist who often chose single subjects such as clouds or grain stacks and did many studies of them.

An artists’ reception will be held Tuesday in the Spies art gallery from 4 p.m., until closing at 8. The public is invited; refreshments will be provided. Bradley and Pazdera’s wife and daughter will be present. The art on display will be for sale.
