Black and White with a Splash of Color by Holly Denihan
Join us March 1st from 6-10PM as we feature Holly Denihan. Her paintings draw the eye to specific places in the image through the use of black and white and color.
From Holly’s Artist Statement:
“Most of my work has consisted of black and white with a splash of color emphasizing the shadows and highlighting accent of the background. I also enjoy painting flowers with every petal as its own unique piece.”
Update: Due to some preparation for First Friday, we are going to cancel this event. Email your ideas–We already have a few organizations/speakers confirmed for the next few months!
I have this idea–I want to create a monthly event to talk about topics that interest our community. Ideally, I’d love to have local non-profits share what they do, how they do it and how others can get involved. I like learning about new issues, and I love hearing how people have been creative and adventurous in tackling community/global/life issues.
I’ve talked with a few non-profits and they are excited about having an opportunity to share. Look for more details on this to come! When I was brainstorming ideas and topics, I decided it would be more exciting and effective if I invited YOU to join in my brainstorming process.
So, you are invited to send me an email at email@example.com with ideas or topics that you would like to discuss. If you know of a local non-profit that you think may be interested in, let me know.
If you would like to sit down with me and just talk about the possibilities of this idea, meet me at the gallery January 29th at 7pm for one hour.
I had the pleasure of meeting Hannah last summer at the gallery. As a senior in high school, she has vision for her art. She also seems to have an old soul–one where she is able to see beauty around her in unique ways.
Hannah’s new exhibit will be exploring the relationships of wholeness-growth-&-tribulation through film photography and abstract art. Themes such as love, mystery, worship and struggle are evident in her art. She is able to see the Lord’s beauty in a the world around her.
Come see her new exhibit, Circling, February 1st. She will be hanging out that evening between 6-9PM to answer any questions and to talk about her art.
Years ago I started having potlucks and dinners in my home and others’ homes. Throughout the last few years I have been able to meet some great people and eat delicious food.
This Saturday December 8th, I will be having the final potluck for 2012 and wanted to invite you! It will be at the gallery at 7pm. You will be able to meet new people, share conversation and eat good food. Bring a side dish or dessert. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to give me a heads up so we can plan small details.
