Color The World A Beautiful Place
The Gmeiner Art & Cultural Center announces an exhibit opening with mother and daughter artists Amy Wilston and Elizabeth Colegrove. Their exhibit of poured paintings titled “Color the World a Beautiful Place” will be on display in the Main Gallery at the Gmeiner from Saturday, February 5 – Saturday, February 26.
Poured paintings are created by using many different acrylic colors to create a magnificent kaleidoscope effect. Elizabeth and Amy have put this technique to use on canvases as well as objects. Elizabeth enjoys the depth of richer colors, with the luminescence of silver, gold, and metallics mixed in. Amy likes a bolder color palette, almost like fireworks in motion. They are inspired by the beauty that surrounds all of us and hope that their exhibit will fill the audience’s lives with color.
This exhibit will open with an artist’s reception from 2-4PM on Saturday, February 5. Light refreshments will be provided. The Gmeiner is currently open from 12-6PM Mondays through Saturdays and admission to the gallery is always free.
