Overture Galleries Winter Reception
Fri, Jan 11
Promenade Lounge: Free
Ages 6 and up
Join us for an Overture Galleries Reception FRI, JAN 11 from 6 PM – 8 PM! Three Galleries run from TUE, DEC 11, 2018 – SUN, MAR 3, 2019:
Gallery I – What We Inherit: Remnants of Light and Space
Angelica Contreras & Ellen Reynolds Hall
Hall and Contreras are both painters who create compositions that embody a moment or feeling. Influenced by imagery from many cultures, Contreras uses paint and rich collaged patterns to create figures and the environments they reside in. Through the medium of oil paint, Hall uses the natural world to explore color, light, form, energy and emotion.
Gallery II – Strata
Hannah Bennett & Gabrielle Cordes
Bennett and Cordes push the boundaries of the materials they use. Bennett is inspired by nature, using paper pulp, textiles, embroidery and found objects as sculptural mediums to express her ideas. Cordes creates intuitively, assembling dynamic sculptures with contrasting colors and materials.
Gallery III – Painted Stones
Curated by Laurel Fletcher
Stone-painting has increased in popularity, driven by social media and the “Kindness Rocks” movement. Adults and children paint stones and leave them in public spaces to be discovered by strangers, with the goal of spreading friendship and a sense of community.
