You are invited to the art walk and reception on Saturday, June 8, 1-4PM. The reception will take place at the Project 308 Gallery located at 308 Oliver Street with live music, free refreshments and an art exhibition featuring the original artwork that was submitted for this project.
Attendees will be invited to walk down Oliver Street to view an array of art hanging in the storefront windows of businesses.
Attendees will also get a first glance of a mural to be painted on a building on Oliver Street.
Over 50 artists responded to a public call for art for this project. The art that will be installed in the windows were selected by a panel of community members and professionals from our local arts community. All artists who submitted artwork to the project are invited to participate in the exhibition at Project 308 Gallery.
The reception is free to attend and open to the public.
"My art is a reflection of my inspirations - music, emotion, relationships, nature, memories, etc. I approach my work intuitively, drawing upon my subconscious to create marks and gestures that are innately my own. Acrylic is my medium of choice because of the quick drying time, versatility and easy manipulation. I typically lay down a quick background, sometimes working on two or more pieces at a time, then I step back and let the shapes and movement reveal themselves. Using various traditional and nontraditional tools and different media such as pastels, oil pigments, acrylic markers etc. I draw from my inspirations and strengthen my intuition to build and knock back layers to complete an abstract work that is cohesive. I create work full of movement, texture, marks, color and balance. Using an intuitive technique allows me to tap into my truest expression."
