The Mesquite Arts Center is offering two free artist exhibitions in the month of January, Freedom From Grieving by Mesquite Artist, Paige Lehmann and a Collage/Ink Series by Lanny Quarles.
Freedom From Grieving by Mesquite artist Lehmann includes a story series of 12 pieces. The concept is to share her story through visual art and poetry about going from an internal place of deep grieving to an external place of joy without ceasing.
Quarles’ Collage Series focuses on finding ways in which the materials at hand elicit their own voices and expressionisms in a conversation with the artist or viewer and the Ink Series follows a long period of working in asemic or abstract writing techniques.
Mesquite Arts Center Manager, Cohn Drennan said, “It’s great to have Paige back at the Mesquite Arts Center. Her last project here was an invitational concert with MISD students. Now we get to share her visual aesthetic with the community. Lanny’s work is a wonderful combination of being educational and entertaining, sometimes just silly and fun. Maybe something we need right now.”
Both exhibits are available from January 11 through March 27. Freedom From Grieving will be on display in the Chamber Gallery and the Collage/Ink Series will be on display in the Main Gallery. The Mesquite Arts Center is located at 1527 N Galloway Avenue. For more information about the exhibitions, visit www.mesquiteartscenter.org
