4th Friday Art Shows and Opening Reception @ Art Works!

Friday, July 23 at 6:00pm to 8:00pm

TAKE ME AWAY is the theme of the Summer All Media Show at Art Works. We invite artists to explore vacations—the need for, the escape from the ordinary and a change of scenery. A new exhibit by Mark Price has us thinking about the end of the world, as we know it, and a new non-sensible construct. Alyssa Sicard’s new work in the Skylight Gallery, scrutinizes the lives, dreams, struggles, and hopes of the modern woman.  

Thyra Moore’s exhibit, Beyond the Tangible, continues in the main gallery.
Join us on July 23rd, 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. for the opening reception. Meet the artists. There will be music and door prizes. Parking is free. The exhibits continue through August 21, 2021. This event is free and open to the public.

Exhibits include:
Beyond the Tangible: Abstract Art Inviting Imagination by Thyra Moore

Thyra Moore is from Maryland. She is intrigued by the complexity of life with its many dimensions, multiple layers, frequent changes, and continual evolution. She sees life as a positive energy—full of stories, events, and experiences which she translates into color and texture. Her creative process involves recurring development and destruction. Without a preconceived plan, each action informs the next. There is a continual exchange between spontaneous and deliberate moves. The primary theme is an evolution from adversity to optimism.
During development, abandoned items are transformed to emerge as an integral part of each painting. Ultimately each painting comes to life revealing a sense of lyrical movement ready to add drama to your decor. The exhibit will be in the Jane Sandelin Gallery.
In the Time to Come by Mark Price

Mark Price’s exhibit is a story, in visual form, about the time to come after the world, as we know it, ends, and returns altered but essentially the same. It is a nonsensical narrative which can be taken many ways. The exhibit draws your story, into Price’s story--because your interpretation may say more than the painter’s intention.
This exhibit will be in the Corner Gallery.
