Join us during First Friday Art Walk to meet and greet artist Irene Salley who will mesmerize you with her vibrant, nature inspired oil paintings. Enjoy refreshments while you experience and discuss the beauty of nature as rendered by Salley in her creations.
Born in Guadeloupe, a small, tropical island in the French West Indies, Salley uses her French upbringing as a basis in her paintings. When studying in Paris, she was inspired by the post-impressionist movement, evoking her spontaneous, motion-filled style. Salley uses her observations to make discoveries about the world surrounded her. Her paintings of Guadeloupe, Provence, and Florida encompass her love for her work, as they are filled with emotion, rapid strokes, and color.
Salley’s fantastic work will be on display in the gallery September 1 through October 1, 2017.
