The High Street Gallery will host an exhibition of paintings by Ian Grice, Gabriella Capello and Savannah Hardy, 7-10 p.m., May 8.
The gallery is located in Victoria House, 2110 Victoria St. in Beaumont.
“Ian has been creating amazing art work for many years while growing up in the area,” Olivia Busceme, gallery director, said. “He has also invited two up-and-coming artists to show along with him. We’re very excited about all of their beautiful paintings.”
Entry is free and the work will be for sale.
Beaumont-native Grice said he gets his education from all that surrounds him. He said his work is “varied, sincere, and adventitious.”
“My influences are family, friends, acquaintances, strangers, and driven by the winds of change throughout our shared and universal existence,” he said.
“I would love for the eyes of the beholders to leave knowing that art is just. Just as life. Everything that one could like and dislike. The strive to make things better and the content of knowing that our imperfections deserve just as much if not more solace and serenity.”
Gabriella Capello, a freelance model and Lamar University student, loves to explore different media including watercolor, acrylic, and woodburning.
“I admire the fine fibers and filaments holding life together in the most intricate and mysterious of patterns,” Capello said. “I also find staggering emotion accessible through depictions of the loss of something beautiful.”
studies at Glassell School of Art and is influenced by the work of Alex Grey as well as life’s experiences, reality, and mystery.
“Art is within and without you, real and unreal, natural and unnatural; it is everything,” she said.
