Opening Reception October 13th 6-9pm and Artist Talk November 9th 6pm

October/November will feature the work of FRANK member artists Nerys Levy and Michele Maynard. Mainly painting en plein air, Nerys uses the outside world as direct inspiration for her evocative and impressionistic work. Her latest collection uses a trip to the Antarctic as a focus of her work while also informing on the ever evolving effects of climate change on the earth. Michele’s energetic and colorful figurative and abstract work takes cue from the vibrancy and emotion of color and shapes. Her current collection is a true representation of the creative work she does with both paint and fabric elements drawing inspiration from all facets of life.

Please join us on Saturday October 13th from 6-9pm for the opening reception of this show!
