February is the month to celebrate love, past, present and future. Please join the cooperative for a special, month long, commemorative exhibit featuring 2 extremely talented and loved members who are moving on to new adventures in life. The opening reception will be on Friday February 3rd from 6 – 8 pm.
Leslie Allyn paints whimsical designs in rich colors and organic line, using unique techniques in watercolor and black ink pen. The paintings and their distinctive style are a clever combination of the ethereal and the mundane, inspired by dreams, nature, contemplation, and fleeting moments.
Mingqiu Chen is a Chinese paper cutting artist who has mastered the technique with exquisite details. Viewers often find her compositions astonishing when they realize all are painstakingly made from hand cut paper.
C’ville Arts will miss both of these popular artists and their generous spirit, as they individually move away from Charlottesville to seek new passions. We wish them both a wonderful future filled with vision, creativity and prosperity. This is a rare opportunity to show your appreciation by giving them a strong farewell celebration.
