1/15 - 2/26 ART EXHIBITS: Particulates of Light ~ Artwork of Jim Hurst
Opening Reception 5:30-7pm on January 15th. When an artist applies paint to canvas, they are in effect painting light. As light is made of particles of energy, spray paint is made of particulates of pigment. I came across this spray paint art form only a few years ago and explored its potential to create art, and I found spray paint can emulate light that leaves the piece with a pleasing glow, drawing the viewer like a moth toward the light placed on canvas. For more information call 738-4339.
