- Ty's Painted Poles by Ty Dickey -- June 14 -- Aug. 4 / Reception: June 21 6-8 p.m.
Dickey creates his works from a strong African-centered viewpoint, drawing inspiration from his surroundings. His latest works are decorative fabric spools, a mixed media form that incorporates recycled cardboard paper and acrylic paint.
Each piece is elegant and unique; the same design is never painted twice.
Several of the pieces incorporate Ghanaian adinkra symbols. Other pieces are freeform, with geometric shapes and doodles that are created in the moment.
- Peru Children by Daniel Cotrina Rowe -- June 14 -- Aug. 4 / Reception: June 21, 6-8 p.m.
Daniel Cotrina Rowe is a native of Cajamarca, Peru. He studied at the Fine Arts School of "Mario Urteaga." Rowe's artwork is included in the Latin American Artists Registry of the prestigious Latin American Museum of Long Beach, Calif. (MOLAA).
Rowe currently directs the Art Center called Archikwayra, in which he shares his experience as a painter with talented children from the community of Otuzco in Cajamarca. Because art is not taught in schools in the area this program is extremely important to bring art to children in their community. All of the artwork is done by children who attend the programs at the Art Center and all pieces are for sale.
The sales from Rowe's show will be used to purchase supplies for the Archikwayra so the children can continue to learn and enjoy art!
