First Fridays Art Opening, “World Horizons” with Judy McLeod
November 2 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
“Water, water, everywhere …..” in the many-colored oceans, in the many-colored skies, in the lakes and rivers, the flora, the fauna, and in ourselves.
Water is the essential force and the natural resource that constitutes and connects everything we know on Planet Earth, life.
My good fortune took me, for several years, sailing around the world, my ship a small vessel in the vastness of the oceans of Planet Earth.
This tiny speck of Planet Earth is huge and magnificent to us whilst barely significant in the vastness of the universe.
These paintings on paper combine gouache, watercolor, cut papers, crystals, and wax.
Join us for food, wine, and lively conversation as we celebrate the artwork of Judy McLeod. Her exhibition is free and open to the public.
