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.

Writing Workshop with Nick Jaina @ 9th Street Studios
Feb 22 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Nick Jaina just completed a novel. It took him two years and he made a lot of mistakes, but he kept going and experimenting. All along he believed there was a way through. Because of this process, he wants to be an ally for other writers who are trudging through the dark in the difficult process of creation.
Nick Jaina likes to remind you that writing is not just something that happens in your head. Writing also comes from your body, from your emotions, from your ancestors, from the collective unconscious. When we put too much pressure on our poor little brains we sometimes seize up and think that our writing is inadequate and mundane. When we reach out to these other realms of creation we can enrich our writing and make progress that gives us confidence.

If you’re interested in having writing be a bigger part of your life, this is the workshop for you. The emphasis is on positive creation, feeling safe in your emotions, finding your own voice and expressing it.

This class is appropriate for whatever level of writer you are. Some people take it just to find some structure in their life so they can start writing, and others attend who are in the midst of writing a book and trying to find their way home.
Nick’s main goal is to be an ally for you and offer structured approaches to the creative side of writing in order to gain momentum and have writing be a solid part of your life.
Bring a pen and paper or a laptop. It is okay. We will create together.

Nick’s first book, the memoir Get It While You Can, was a finalist for the 2016 Oregon Book Award.
