Starting April 19, the gallery will be featuring the art of Hollie Fadem.
Statement from the artist on her show:
“A chaotic melding of colors gives my mind peace. Painting is an outlet, art is my release. As I’m creating, darkness starts fading. My emotions become bold and my mood stabilized. I hold that awareness very close to my heart.
The inspiration for my artwork comes from emotions, experiences, and my surroundings. My family has always supported my interest in expressing myself through art, in whatever form. I have also been influenced by urban street art and the statement it projects.
I love combining different mediums, such as, acrylics with melted crayons and adding small detail with sharpies. I have veered away from using traditional canvases, by upcycling old bookcases, underlayment, and scrap wood. The textures represent the layers of experiences and hardships I’ve overcome.
Art is always up for interpretation. There is no wrong or right answer when admiring a masterpiece. I would like to inspire others to create with their feelings and let go of self-doubt. I encourage anyone to come be a part of my “judgment-free zone” On April 19th. The universe and its changes motivated my recent art pieces that will be for sale. I will have an “Inspiration Station” set up with mini canvases you can paint and take home with you. I am looking forward to seeing you, till then, peace & love.”
Artist Reception on April 19 from 5pm-8pm.
