Florence Events Center: "Women In Thought" - Paintings by Kat Cunningham REception Dec 3rd, 5 to 7 pm

Artist Kat Cunningham wonders, “Do we really see what is there?” After I finished my memoir, Kat’s 9 Lives of Self-Discovery, it was fresh in my mind the many places I had lived and traveled to, and how many choices I had made that affected my experiences.

As an artist, I had photographed the women in these areas because I saw some aesthetic value. The light and color was exciting or the historical textures were rich. As I looked back on them in that phase of my life, I wondered if what I was shooting was the real story. Were the costumes, trappings, the excitement of the environment, the honest story? What were the women really thinking? FlorenceEventsCenter - Read full story...

@ BACKSTREET : November's Featured Artist is Tamarah Phillips with her debut show "Chromatic Garden"

Backstreet’s new member, Tamarah Phillips, will debut her first show, “Chromatic Garden”, in November. Her reception takes place on November 8th, from 3 to 5PM at Backstreet Gallery, 1421 Bay Street.

With a very distinctive style enveloped in linear designs, organic shapes and vibrant colors, she captures her subject in an other-worldly fantasy. Perhaps having a seamstress for a mother who surrounded Tamarah with fabrics, textures and patterns gave impetus to her captivating, and as she calls it, intuitive work.
