From Narrative to Interpretation
Art Exhibit by Myra Dwyer and Peg Truman
March 24 to May 31
Myra Dwyer and Peg Truman collaborate to show opposing styles. Of her work Peg says, " My work is primarily representational." She sees the fascinating world as an opportunity "to tell a story through my art." Both painters work in acrylics, oils and watercolors; however, Myra's specialty is abstract acrylic pours that contain several layers of paint and glaze, as much as 30 or more layers. Whereas Peg sees the world in realistic narratives, Myra does abstract interpretations of reality. The exhibit will hang for two months in the Fellowship Hall.
The Art Board of The Presbyterian Church of Bowling Green recognizes the important role the visual arts have played in personal expression and in religious life through the ages. As part of our church outreach ministry, our gallery displays art in a variety of media. Through periodic exhibits, artist receptions, and participation in local art events, our gallery contributes to the creative dialogue between church and community.
CALL TO ARTISTS
The Presbyterian Church Arts Board invites artists to submit to the exhibits in Gallery TPC. The gallery in the Fellowship Hall is used by church members, but also serves as an event space for the entire south central Kentucky community.
Eligibility and Selection
Open to all artists, amateur and professional, working in two-dimensional media, including photography. Wall mounted three-dimensional work will also be considered. The exhibit space will serve as a public art space and artists should take all persons, including children, into consideration and submit appropriate artwork. Please consult our home page for open dates in the coming year.
The Fellowship Hall is a 50’x60’ space with can lights along the walls which light individual works of art. All work is hung from a traditional picture rail. Please be prepared to hang each piece with this format in mind. The Fellowship Hall is open to the public weekdays from 8:30am until 4:30pm and on Sunday morning, so feel free to stop by before submitting to VIEW the exhibit space.
Sales are encouraged, although it is not mandatory to have artworks for sale to be eligible for an exhibit. No percentage on any sale is taken by the church. Artists provide contact information for prospective buyers who then contact artists directly to arrange payment and delivery following the end date of the exhibit.
A reception for the artist will be provided by the church and open to the public.
