Young Artists @440
Make Dreamy Art
Sunday, October 11th, 4:40 pm

Led by Vicki Behm and Susan Greenstein, 440 Gallery members

Amy Williams’ new photographs may look like abstract art; but they are photos of nature that she shot with a camera known for making blurry images full of motion; very dreamy. The show is called Sanctuary and was shot at Okefenokee Swamp in Georgia. We will create drawings of nature that are full of motion. Susan and Vicki can teach you a “trick” or technique to create this dreamy quality. Shall we dream of Prospect Park? Central Park? Swamps? Beaches? Mount Everest?

Closing Reception
Saturday, October 18th, 5:00-7:00pm

Join artist Amy Williams for a closing reception of her solo exhibition, Sanctuary.
