Imagined Landscapes and Abstracts : WG Lewis Exhibition @ 9th Street Studios
Jan 12 – Mar 1 all-day

Imagined Landscapes and Abstracts; a body of work by artist, WG Lewis

 

Lewis is a native Wichita Falls artist with a working studio at 9th Street Studios whose current medium of choice is oil paints.  Lewis’ oil paintings consist of minimalistic renderings of imaginary landscapes; some could be of this world, others are definitely not.  In addition to his realistic landscapes, he also paints scenes with science fiction elements such as astronauts, spaceships and extraterrestrial terrain.  His abstracts explore quantum physics, neuron networks and dreams.

Lewis’ work can be viewed Monday – Friday, 10:am-5pm through March 1st, 2019.

For more information, contact Becky Raeke at 940-781-8841.

Advanced Youth Art at the Kemp (ages 10-14) @ The Kemp
Jan 17 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

THURSDAYS, 4-5pm
AGES 10-14

This class is structured for older students who are ready for slightly more challenging art projects and concepts. Students will have a variety of subjects and materials.

Please note that class is registered BY THE MONTH.

***PORTFOLIO REVIEW: IF POSSIBLE, the instructor would like each NEW STUDENT to bring in a few samples of their artwork.  This is so she can get an immediate feel for where they’re at in their learning and can custom-tailor the lessons to meet that child’s needs.  While not required to register, it will allow each child to jump into the lessons right away at a level that’s suitable to their skills.***
