Opening Reception on Friday, January 5, 2018 – 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.
Show will run from January 5 – 26, 2018
The Beloit Art Center is pleased to announce their January show will feature the works of The Visionary Artists – a group of painters from the Whitewater/Fort Atkinson area. Formed in 2008 as an art-critique group, they meet monthly with a goal to enrich their artistic energies and expand their creative processes.
Six artists of this group will be showing over 100 pieces of their art. The artists are:
Thomas Jewell an oil painter who draws his inspiration from nature often painting landscapes and water scenes.
Barbara Grant who looks at art as a playful, inventive process using accidents, smudges, mistakes and spills as a pathway to her creations.
Marilyn Fuerstenberg who works with transparent watercolors which allow her to capture subtle and vibrant color through multiple washes. Pigments are allowed to mix and mingle on the paper to create a spontaneous dimension while granulating pigments create interesting textures.
Joyce Follis uses the flow of colors and water as they mix together on a blank piece of paper to create paintings that draw the viewer into the beauty of what she has created.
Mary Nevicosi uses a simplistic approach to art responding to her surroundings, the seasons and the people and things she loves. She paints quickly and does not limit herself to anyone technique, style or medium.
And, John Dynkowski who discovered watercolor to be his medium of choice painting the scenery that surrounds him whether it is cityscapes or rural landscapes.
Opening night for this exhibit is Friday January 5th from 5 to 8 pm. The event is free and open to the public. The artists will be on hand to meet the public and discuss their art. The show will continue through January 26th. The artwork will be available for purchase with a small percentage going to benefit the Beloit Art Center.
The Beloit Art Center is located at 520 E. Grand Avenue in downtown Beloit.
