First I want to state that I am not an expert in galleries or contemporary art. That's why I'm attending gallery openings and writing about them on this blog. I'm learning so much!
Multimedia ruled this contemporary show, making up at least half, if not more of the paintings. I was interested to see both gel plate, resin, cold wax and encaustic works, as well as those using fabric and thread and acrylic, and college. The offerings today are so much different than they were when I was an art student a million years ago, but what fun!
|These works by Brad Ellis are made up of encaustic and collage on board. I have to admit that I had to look up "encaustic," but now I'm hooked and must try it. I also really like the surrounding college covered with translucent color. |
I'll probably have to go back and visit this show again. It's my self-education program, and learning was never so fun!
The second show I attended was "Amused Bemused," by Tara Booth, held at the TAC Gallery on East Reconciliation Way.
|Besides attending the show, just being downtown on First Friday was a treat!|
