Opening Show for Winner of the Bleeding Hearts Photo Contest Popular Vote Winner Next Weekend

Carbondale, Illinois - HeartlandArts.Net and the Red Ear announce the opening show on Friday, April 3, for Alison Charles, one of the winners of the Bleeding Hearts Photo Contest. The contest was conducted in February and Alison was the winner of the online popular vote with "reaching the cold heart." She will be featured in a solo show to be held at the Red Ear on Main Street in Alto Pass, across from the Root Beer Saloon, with an opening on Friday, April 3, from 6-9pm, where refreshments and snacks will be served. Alison's work will show at the Red Ear during the first two weekends of April, 4th-5th and 11th-12th, from 1-6pm each day.

Alison Charles is a digital artist and salesperson at B&L Photo in Carbondale. About her “reaching the cold heart” submission, she wrote:
Bleeding Hearts, the phrase can create different interpretations. I began with the literal meaning of a heart. The image "reaching the cold heart” represented the idea of a heart that cares (melts) while everything around it is cold, frozen, and empty.
