Portraits and Figurative Art - written by ME! - published in a local magazine


Here in Woodstock GA we are very lucky to have a couple of very nice local magazines published on a monthly basis. Around Town (TowneLaker) Magazine shares a variety of articles - health and happiness, marriage advice, mom advice and stories, even decorating ideas.

Last month I noticed a feature called "Art Scene" and, anticipating our "Face and Figure:Portraits and Figurative Art" show coming up this month, I submitted an article about Portrait and Figurative art.

I wanted to encourage our local community, artists and art appreciators, to think about why artists so often chose the figure as a subject matter. Some of my reasons included sharing a common experience or expressing an emotion that otherwise could not be expressed.

I'm not a very seasoned writer, but I hope that the article is well received and our community comes together to support some great local artists AND two VERY special local galleries!

You can find more info about the two galleries hosting the "Face and Figure" shows on their websites

The opening reception for the show is August 7th from 5:PM - 9:PM at both galleries.
Many thanks to Kara Kiefer and the rest of the Townelaker staff for supporting the local art scene!
