Art Activist Paul Welch Discusses Work July 10
Lecture in connection with From Within II Exhibit
Elk Rapids, Mich. – Art Activist, Paul Welch, will present an exciting discussion of his work and the artists who influenced him at the Twisted Fish Gallery on Monday, July 10 from 3 to 5pm.
This presentation will be held in connection with the Gallery’s July exhibit entitled FROM WITHIN II, A Departure From Reality.
Paul Welch was Chair of the Art Department at Northwestern Michigan College for 27 years. Several of his paintings will be included in the FROM WITHIN II exhibit and will be the focal point of his discussion. Paul will discuss his use of color, shape and form in the development of his paintings.
Welch has been very involved in the development of our arts culture in Northern Michigan and has been an active promoter of art throughout this area. Most recently he has been the driving force behind the presentation of artistic banners on buildings in Traverse City buildings.
Paul’s extensive knowledge of art history and technique combined with his public activism on behalf of the arts makes him an especially interesting speaker.
Call the Gallery at 264-0123 to reserve a place for this exciting discussion. Refreshments will be served.
The FROM WITHIN II exhibit is a “departure from reality,” and presents the unique perspectives of 20 artists. Seeing the world through a prism of individual emotion, each of the artists represent their personal perspective in unparalleled ways. Each artist may have their own terminology, calling their works abstract, modern, contemporary or nonrepresentational. FROM WITHIN II opens with a reception July 7 from 6-8 p.m. where refreshments will be provided, and runs through July 30. Both are free and open to the public.
Twisted Fish Gallery and Sculpture Garden is located at 10443 S. Bayshore Drive in Elk Rapids, Michigan and is open from 10 am to 5 pm Monday through Saturday. Call 231 264-0123 or visit twistedfishgallery.com online for additional information.
