Upcoming Exhibit

Peace

Diane Edwards

Artist Statement
My passion for painting on canvas began three years ago at a Pinot’s Palette event in St. Petersburg, Florida, planned by my sister. I never dreamed that experience would take me on a much-needed journey of peace after losing my husband of 45 years. I mostly work in acrylics and use brushes, but have done some watercolors and palette knife paintings as well. I have created some Impressionist and Folk Art pieces for fun. However, most of my work is Realism, and I feel these paintings evoke a true sense of peace.

All proceeds will be donated to The Hub Arts and Cultural Center.

Thank you to The Hub Arts & Cultural Center and Culbertson Memorial Hospital for allowing me to share my art through the Emerging Artists program.

Creatures

Photographs by Grace Tomlinson

Initially when asked if I wanted to have my own show, I was excited but also incredibly nervous. How would I name a show and have enough photographs representing the work I love that I wanted to display for the public? After minimal searching on my computer, I found the answer to my question. Everything began to flow, and thus Creatures was born. It just made sense. Creatures perfectly represents my love for animals and gives the viewer an intimate and unique up-close glimpse of animals from a perspective at which they may have never seen before.
So, at last, I invite you to look. Experience the colors, textures and expressions that is Creatures.
