“Vibrant colors, textured layers”
Every painting is a journey
“Art is a means of communicating with people, not an end in itself.”
Modest Petrovitch Moussorgasky, Russian composer
September 5, 2014
Bar Harbor, Maine
Join us during the September 2014 Art Walk in Bar Harbor as pianist and composer Vanessa Alexandria Boyd performs in the courtyard outside Kathleen Hall Art (weather permitting) or in the gallery.
Vanessa will be playing a series of compositions that she has written over the last 20 years, a unique and delightful combination of Classical, Easy Listening, New Age and Pastoral generes. Many have been inspired by, and are evocative of, Acadia National Park and its many natural wonders.
Have a glass of wine, listen to the music and enjoy the art in the gallery!
Vanessa began playing the piano at age 5 and eventually earned a full music scholarship to the St. Louis Conservatory of Music where she focused on classical performance. Over the past 35 years, she has taught piano and written her own compositions, many of which have been inspired by the beauty of Acadia National Park and the people who have touched her heart.
Elizabeth Coffey will be the featured artist for the August First Friday Art Walk. Stop by to see her multi-media portraits as well as the other art in the gallery.
This series of portraits is based on found photographs, cropped and manipulated to show some features, but hide others. The subject’s full face is never revealed, inviting the viewer to relate to her through the pose, clothing and color. How much visual information do we need to form an impression and make up a story about someone? I hope that viewers are curious about the subjects of these portraits, and will see their own stories in them. Elizabeth Coffey
Elizabeth is a mixed-media artist living and working in Richmond, Virginia. She received her BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University. Through a combination of painting, drawing and collage, Elizabeth explores relationships and the individual’s place in the world.
Hope to see you on August 1!
