First Friday Art Walk – November 2019
Discover Art Downtown with our Artist Reception at NexLynx Gallery of Arts, Friday November 1st from 5pm to 8pm. View the diverse paintings by returning artist, Devi Wilbur during our First Friday Art Walk.
Devi Wilbur, an award-winning landscape and portrait artist from Niles, Kansas, paints mostly in oils on panel and drawing with pen and ink. She also works with acrylics, pastels, watercolor, pencils, and charcoal. Her 3-D artwork includes pottery and sculpting in both clay and stone.
Her work involves bringing beautiful and forgotten places, people, and history to life. Her inspiration comes from and through a diverse array of subject matter with her signature work hovering between the realm of impressionism and realism, usually depicted with scenery and portraiture.
Devi hopes her artwork provokes thought and inspires others to step out of their comfort zone. For more details about her work, visit deviwilbur.carbonmade.com.
As always, we will have snacks, soda, craft beer and wine. This month, enjoy our selection of fall beers (or whatever we decide might be interesting) and hot apple cider.
We hope to see you here!
NexLynx Gallery of Arts started in 2010, after being selected as one of the venues for the ReThink Topeka Exhibition and Art Walk that same year and each year after. The Re-Think Topeka Art Walk was a movement to spur re-building community awareness through art and cultural events. NexLynx continues to be a proud supporter of the art community with our monthly exhibits and opening receptions. We worked with the former Arts Council of Topeka, and now ArtsConnect to promote art in the community as a premier downtown gallery on the Downtown Topeka Art Walk.
The Gallery is located on the 2nd floor of the historic downtown Bates Building. Walter L. Bates' (1859-1903) last business enterprise was the building of the structures on the corner of Sixth Avenue and Jackson Streets, known as the Bates Block, which includes the I.O.O.F. Hall (117 W. 6th - c. 1910) and 123 W. 6th (c. 1902).
NexLynx Gallery was voted a Finalist for both 2016 and 2017 People's Choice Awards, nominated by people in the Topeka Community as their favorite stop on the First Friday Art Walk, a program of ArtsConnect.
