Yesterday, Saturday, December 10, a special showing of artwork from some our own Second Saturday Studio artists took place in the Searcy Art Gallery. It was a wonderful opening to a really good showing of local artists. The show will be hanging until sometime in January, so perhaps you might want to gather some friends, have a nice lunch, and visit the Searcy Art Gallery for some art shopping. The gallery is located in the old 'Black House' on Race Street, just before you get to Walgreens. There is sign out front.
You'll enjoy the variety of art for sale and the gift shop also.
Searcy Art Gallery Hours: Monday-Friday 1-4:30 and Saturday 10-2:00.
Four artists from Second Saturday Studio are participating in the show. Kelly VanHook, Audra Jones, Micah Holden and Cheri Peden have quite a selection of their artwork there for you to see and enjoy. They each have their own style and it's interesting to see what they've created.
Kelly does abstracts.....she sure loves color! Here you will see several of her pieces.....and you'll enjoy them even more in person. Many layers of paint make up each canvas....it's fascinating to watch her paint....as she brushes, smears, dabs, sprays and adds those many layers and colors.
Audra does the most delightful animal portraits using watercolors. She'd be happy to do a portrait of your own pet. They are so lifelike, sometimes you have to look twice at them to be sure they aren't photos. She has other talents as well, having cards and little books at Second Saturday also.
Micah paints whimsical paintings.....delightful is what they are! She never fails to enchant us with her sense of color, the subject matter and the little 'stories' these paintings can tell. It's always FUN when Micah is in the studio!
Then, there is Cheri. Oh my! Cheri paints using many different media.......oil, watercolors, and acryllic and paints on everything from canvas, to antique tin ceiling tiles, to boards, and on and on. We are constantly amazed by her. She recently opened a booth at the new Freeway Emporium where she will sell some of her paintings, and a variety of vintage items. You'll want to check it out.
So........there are four of our artists. Such great girls.....so talented and ready to see you at Second Saturday Studio. Let us know how you feel about the show...and drop in to our studio anytime the lights are on!
