May 4 - May 25
First Friday Art Walk – May 2018
Discover Art Downtown at NexLynx Gallery of Arts, Friday May 4th from 5pm to 8pm, to view the beautiful oil portraits by Lawrence artist, Patrick Schlotterback, during our First Friday Art Walk.
Working exclusively in oils, Patrick finds his inspiration in photographs, whether it be vintage slides or postcards, or photos he’s taken personally. The subject begins to form a story, from there, he hopes to invoke a reaction in the viewer. Each painting becomes so much more than a still photograph. More color. More freedom. More emotion. Each piece far more unique from one another, just as his subjects.
Patrick received a Bachelor of Arts in Education from the University of Kansas in 1991 and has been teaching middle school art in Ottawa for the past 25 years. He has also won several awards from juried art shows.
As always, we will have snacks, soda, craft beer and wine. This month only, we’re featuring Mexican beers and margaritas. Or try one of several varieties of iced or hot tea or coffee from the brew station.
We hope to see you here!
