RICHNESS, RICHNESS EVERYWHERE
What rich fun to be in the company of artists, like Eric Haun, president of artCentral’s Board of Directors.
Eric is a painter and a gifted hair stylist, too, with bookings that stretch months ahead. Thankfully I’ve learned the art of scheduling my appointments well in advance. The pleasures of sitting in Eric’s chair always include happily conversing over whatever we each have going on artistically.
After I sit beneath Eric’s genius, when my artist-musician beau comes to fetch me for dinner, being the painter that he is, he takes great relish in lifting one lock then another admiring and exclaiming over the richness of Eric’s artful painting. When David pronounces the results and me “very beautiful”, I’m blissed, for truly I’m a lucky woman having men in my life who know how to make and appreciate the richness of art in many, many expressions, even on my head.
Richness is an ever present theme in my life, especially at artCentral. Richness of art and artists. Richness of opportunity. Richness of support. Richness of making a difference in our hometown we love so dearly.
Richness abounds the evening of Doug Randall’s Opening Reception for his “Mindscapes” Exhibition filled with his fifty-six landscape and floral paintings—an abundance of beauty masterfully created from his nimble brushes and rich oils. Rich is the conviviality with Doug in his kilt and his charming wife Suzy greeting guests and patrons. Rich with pleasure are the happy patrons who purchase favorite selections from Doug’s astounding collection.
Rich is the table bedecked with David Matthews’ installation of twigs, cannas and cattails plucked from the natural abundance of our local waterways. Rich are the chords of his guitar and voice softly singing. Rich is the abundance of delectables spread for our enjoyment—Judy Goff’s pulled pork sliders, pungent cheese spread and gourmet brownies and Lora Waring’s plethora of cookie confections. Rich are the memories of an evening with the new moon waxing above beautiful Hyde House as autumn’s first chill breezes caress guests visiting on the porch.
The richness of “Mindscapes” remains at artCentral for your viewing pleasure through the 25th of September. Weekend gallery hours are Friday and Saturday, 12-5, and Sunday, 1-5. Enrich your day. Enrich your life. Visit artCentral and see the richness abounding on our gallery walls waiting to give you pleasure.
