During the closing night of the show a panel discussion with five of the seven artists took place, hosted by gallery owner Bob Devin Jones. Interesting discussion with insight into our earliest memories gravitating towards creating art, inspiration or themes behind our work and where we see ourselves and the city of St. Pete in 3-5 years. Enjoyed meeting other creatives, learning why like myself they moved to the area and getting the local artist's perceptive on how the city has transformed in the last twenty years.
Gratitude to the staff at the gallery for all the work they do for the art community and also hanging a show that really flowed, capturing the viewers attention. Enjoyed the variety of art on display from 3-D sculptural work by Alan Johnson, to 2-D abstract paintings on metal by Angela Alvarez, figurative work by Patton Hunter in oils and acrylics, botanical paintings by Mary Khosh, work sealed with encaustic wax by Eva Broadbent, watercolors, pen and ink illustration, charcoal drawings by myself and canvas prints by Katie Deits. This was my first opportunity to display a large amount of art with thirteen works total on display. Recent works mainly made in 2017-2018 on canvas, paper and wood, including three black and white images from 2006.
