At G. Lee Gallery This Month:
There’s a lot going on at the gallery this month!
Demonstration by Lana Loveland
Lee Gallery invites you to join for a free sculpture demonstration by Lana Loveland 1-3pm Saturday, March 16th. Lana will show us how she creates free-standing pet sculptures. Working from photos of favorite pets, Lana will show us how she can sculpt a dog or cat’s special features. You will see her create their cute “little” noses, sweet eyes, and fluffy fur. Each sculpture shows the pet’s unique personality.
The demo is not over yet – she will also create a human face. Using various tools and sculptural techniques, she will shape and create the facial features of the eyes, nose, mouth and hair. You will recognize the person – will it be you?
“Dog Spelled Backwards”
Lee Gallery is pleased to introduce Elizabeth Wilson’s premiere show “Dog Spelled Backwards” featuring original portraits of man’s best friend. Attending her first private art class at the tender age of six, she continued with art instruction until her teenage years when life pulled her in countless directions.
A Texas A&M Galveston graduate in marine biology, the mother of five and a new grandmother, she has returned to her easel and love of art. Combining her love for dogs and art, she captures our canine companions with wonderful expression and detail. She’s well on her way to becoming known as the crazy dog lady. She welcomes commission requests of your beloved pet. Be sure to stop by 1-9pm Saturday, March 9th.
Also showing art is: Constance Paul, Ruth Ann Rickman, Keith Clark, Dew and Gary Harvey, Sherrie Kostura, Kelly Halbach, Jane East, Gaw Jones, and Gay Paratore; jewelry by Rene Armstrong and Charlotte Martin; fused glass by Sheryl Lambert; assemblages by Nicki Hirt; pottery by Lana Loveland and, our resident artist George Douglas Lee with still life, landscapes, contemporary and iconic Galveston landmarks in oil, acrylic and mixed media.
