The 5 year anniversary show of Red Dot Gallery is Friday night! Introducing two more fabulous artists to be included in the show:
Jeanne Alexander, a 4 year Red Dot oil painting veteran, (see painting above) has so impressively developed her style and abilities since I’ve know her that she, well, blows my socks off. Plainly stated: This girl can paint! I believe her love of her subject—her family and nature—keep her inspired and working hard at her craft. Her portrayals of her loved ones are much more than traditional portraiture; they are modern genre paintings—lovingly rendered snapshots of everyday life. For the “Red Dot is 5” show Jeanne exhibits smaller landscapes without people.
Shannon Brooks-Hamilton is a 4-year Red Dot student. Shannon has taken drawing for most of her time at Red Dot, and usually works with pen and ink. For this show she’s exhibiting some gorgeous gift boxes covered with crazy, obsessive abstract patterns. Each piece has a matching broach that sits atop or inside the piece, to be used to decorate the box or be worn as jewelry. Her work is very popular around town, so I always get loads of compliments when I wear her jewelry.
We look forward to seeing you at the opening! We'll have festive music, pastries by Culinard, nice non-snooty people, and VERY reasonably priced art. Please join us.
