EXHIBIT: 'Dream In Color'

GIF Horizontal Improved Final Graphic.gif

A joint Guest Artist show of expressive paintings by Andell McCoy and Erin Allen, two regional artists - and friends -  based in Albemarle, NC: 

  • Opening Reception Friday, Nov. 2, 6:30pm-8:30pm

  • Joint Artist Talk, same evening, ClearWater Gallery, 7pm

Statement from Erin and Andell:
Dream in Color is a bright and bold celebration of Color at a time of year when everyone needs it. As artists, we believe strong color inspires positivity and exuberant living. Neutrals, monotones, and dishwater beige need not apply. We are two women finally back on track with what life derailed – rediscovering art and placing creating art at the top of life’s priorities. Art with truth and light and energy. “Wouldn’t it be lovely if people didn’t have to wait until later in life to do what they dream of? We’re back on track and want to share it with the world!"

Falling on our Monthly 2nd Saturday Open Studios. Doors open at 10am for Open Studios throughout the building. Artist Talk 2:00 pm - in our Main Gallery.

See also: the  FaceBook Event Page - The Eventbrite.com listing

ClearWater’s own Resident Artist, Katlyn Wyllie, is the subject, artist, and producer of the current exhibit, ‘Buy The Ticket: One woman’s tale of self-discovery,”

“Buy the Ticket” is an introspective journey designed to put the observer in the cart of a roller coaster.

A young woman, expressive in her everyday, reminisces the intense internal growth she accidentally captured through ten years of portrait photography with seven photographers. To add to the visual portraits and fully tell her tale, the artist also includes tonal explanation within a self-guided audio narration applicable through your smartphone (headphones recommended).

Come visit the remarkable gallery at ClearWater Artist Studios in Concord, North Carolina for this transparent expression of humanity that invites everyone to imagine themselves in the roll to “Buy the Ticket.”

This gallery is always free to the public during ClearWater Artist Studios hours of operation.
