Oil painter Martha Kelly has branched out into the world of printmaking, and she'll be displaying a few of her prints tonight (Thursday, April 14th) in an opening art reception at the Memphis Gay & Lesbian Community Center (892 S. Cooper).
Called "Beyond the Cross," Kelly's show features woodblock and linoleum block prints with an emphasis on simplistic strong lines and texture over color. Kelly was inspired by nature and scripture when creating her work.
Said Kelly: "I find a compelling beauty in our surrounding area: in the open fields, spreading skies, dominating oaks, and magnificent rivers."
The opening runs from 7 to 9 p.m.
