3rd Thursday – JoAnn Aronds-Freeman – Expressions in Color

March 15, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Enjoy these vibrant abstract works in oil, acrylic, pastels and pencil. Freeman describes the process of mixing and layering color as “raw energy in motion.”  The artist states that she rarely has a pre-conceived idea when she begins a new piece. “During the creative process I usually don’t know or understand the imagery. It is later when I feel I have almost completed a piece and step back from it that it feels whole to me, like a complete thought or sentence.”

“Painting for me, is like lingering over dessert with an interesting new friend. There is no hurry,
no indication of where this relationship is going.”  JoAnn Aronds-Freeman

3rd Thursdays are your art night out!  Each 3rd Thursday features a local artist exhibition with works for sale, with complimentary hors d’oeuvres by Wild Asparagus Catering and a cash bar. Musical performances by local musicians and high school students take place in the ballroom.
