LACED - Feminine Limits to Liberty by Lacyn Barton
Barton’s exhibit made from school-glue and acrylic paint tells the story of her teenage self, fighting for life, strength and health. This exhibited in the Centre Gallery, East.
Something Else by Danny Trent
Danny Trent is a abstract painter working in acrylics and occasionally mixed media. His new body of work uses color, line, form and texture to convey an impression of a physical image of a place, an event in history or a fictional influence. He applies paint using encrusted house painters’ brushes and then scrapes the surface. This process of painting and scraping is repeated until the desired results are achieved. Trent studied Art Education at Richard Bland College and Painting & Printmaking at VCU. His work has been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the U.S. His paintings are included in private and corporate collections. This exhibit will be in the Centre Gallery, West.
She is Many Things by Glenda Kotchish
She thinks, dreams and becomes many things in her imagination and in reality. This is the theme of the drawings by Glenda Kotchish. First sketched on paper then scanned and digitized. Using computer graphics, she added color and patterns. Finally, the images were printed in large format. Each piece is accompanied by a quirky quote. The exhibit is in the Skylight Gallery.
