SOLO MEMBER SHOW: ARLINE MANN
May 3 - June 14, 2019
Reception Friday, May 3
Out of the 15 featured artists of the 2018 Juried Members Show, 1 received the highest score and in return, a solo exhibition. This showcase features that Best in Show artist, Arline Mann, a watercolorist that brings attention and fascination to everyday scenes of life. Arline’s incredible skill of detailing allows her to manipulate flat mediums into visuals with such realistic qualities, they appear to imitate photographs.
Coinciding with Arline's solo exhibit, Face It, presented by the AIM Center is featured in the Landis Education Gallery. This showcase looks through the eyes of individuals with mental illness. Doing so broadens our understanding of the spectrum of human experience; therein lies the value of this art, and the people that created it.
