Art Reception: Leacock/Canty
Add to your calendar
Date: August 28, 5:30 pm
Continues Until:
Location: Piper Gallery at the Center for the Arts
Details: Free art reception with JC Leacock and Lian Canty.

This exhibit combines Lian Canty's figurative oil paintings and JC Leacock's handmade guitars as an elegant and emotional expression of forms in general, and specifically, the intimate female form. The show is a culmination of two of Lian’s most favorite subjects, flowers and figures. For years she painted detailed wildflowers, mostly in watercolor and separately human figures in oil. After years of pondering how to blend the two, a friend gave her a book on antique wallpaper patterns, and inspiration struck! The colors, patterns, and flowing floral arrangements gave an unconscious platform to the emotional intent of the figures. Subtle emotions scream out to her when she observes people as flowers portraying human characteristics. Together, her subjects tell their stories. In these paintings, she has used a glazing technique where transparent layers of colors are applied on top of each other. She used this technique first as an exercise in how colors influence each other to create depth and illumination, and last, how objects can be hidden from first glance.
