Opening Gallery Reception at the Doss Heritage & Culture Center
Tonight was gallery night and the official opening of the Weatherford Art Exhibition at the Doss Heritage and Culture Center in Weatherford, Texas. There were two featured artists, Michael Bain, who specializes in troumpe l'oil ("fool the eye") technique, and Pamela Stern, a clay ceramist, who casts her illusionary fugures in a way that challenges the viewer to think in a provocative manner.
The museum show was featured on Channel 11 in Ft. Worth, a tv news station prior to the opening night. The art exhibit will continue through the entire month of September, 2011. More information may be obtained from the Doss website:
I am standing on the left with a good friend, Becky Glasgow, another participating artist in the show. Kudos to C.B. Williams and the staff of the Doss for their efforts at putting together a wonderful exhibition. A night of great reward...
I'm on a journey ...one which involves keen observation, traveling, listening to the inner muse, painting the beauty of God's creation!
The smell of oils, the challenge of new ideas, delicately balancing all I have learned in the process--spells adventure and another moment of learning.
Come with me; share the journey...
