Thank you, Lynn Barnett and Abilene Cultural Affairs Council for all of the work you are doing to promote the arts in Abilene! I’m so honored to be part of this team of organizations working together to make great things happen in our Downtown!
We had a wonderful time keeping the art of blacksmithing alive in Abilene this past Thursday at Art Walk!
Junky Enlightenment works by Chase Turk is an exhibit that shakes one's mind and shows the depth of pain and struggles of addiction. The images are well done and the viewer must read the words that complete the images. Chase as a writer makes understanding the images both painful and hopeful that recovery is possible.I hope all the artist members, the board and the public will spend some time absorbing the art and the words that define each piece.
Sorry I can't attend Thursday, August 24.
To know what you're going to draw, you have to begin drawing.... Picasso
When is the next Artwalk!? 😊
