Christine Misencik-Bunn exhibit to open

| March 12, 2015

COSHOCTON – Christine Misencik-Bunn paints with an unwavering eye. An exhibition of 34 of her watercolors is opening at the Pomerene Center for the Arts in Coshocton on Sunday, March 15 from 2 to 4 p.m.

“Christine compells us to look”–says Pomerene Center Artistic Director and Community Studio Artist Anne Cornell. “She encourages us to look without fear.”

Misencik-Bunn, a resident of Fredericktown, began her career as a designer for American Greeting Cards with a BFA from Miami University of Ohio in hand. It took time, additional graduate work, a master’s degree and teaching in various venues before she realized her greatest joy was working with high school students in the public school setting. For 30 years she helped students realize their abilities and talents.

Her students were consistently recognized statewide at the Ohio Governor’s Youth Art Exhibition. Misencik-Bunn was recognized for her dedication and success as the recipient of multiple Teacher of Execellence Awards. Now retired from her beloved classroom, she is fulfilling her dream as a distinguished artist. Among her accomplishments in the past year  are the following awards: 2014 Utrecht Award, Aqueous USA, Louisville, Kentucky; 2014 People’s Choice & HK Hobein Award, Watercolor West International Juried Exhibition; 2014 Honorable Mention, Artist Magazine 0ver 60 competition; Publications: 2014 Splash 16  North Light Books.

Christine Mesencik-Bunn’s Before I Forget at the Pomerene Center for the Arts, March 15 – April 11, is a display of her technique, strength and personality.

The Pomerene Center for the Arts is located on the corner of Third and Mulberry streets. The center is free and open to the public 1 to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday or by appointment. For information, call 740-622-0326, e-mail [email protected] or visit http://pomerenearts.org.
