MONROE - "The Whimsical World of Tom Kelly," a collection of brightly-colored paintings and wood sculptures from Mineral Point artist Tom Kelly, will be on exhibit Friday through June 5 in the Monroe Art Center's Frehner Gallery, 1315 11th St. Kelly's wood carvings include his trademark bird sitting on an olive, an apple, a mushroom, a big red heart, and other objects. Exhibit organizers said Kelly's carvings are "abundant with a sheer playfulness and pure innocence. Tom's signature evening sky with its full moon will pull you into his canvas, while his flying sheep take you on adventures you thought you'd left to your childhood."
