First Friday Art Walk – November 2017
Discover Art Downtown at NexLynx Gallery of Arts, Friday November 3rd from 5pm to 8pm, to view well-known Topeka artist, Becky Drager’s “Topeka in Color” and live music by Kirk Drager during our First Friday Art Walk.
Celebrate Topeka in Color through paint. With all the exciting things happening in our city, Becky captures all that color and beauty in acrylic paintings of her hometown, Topeka.
She first did paintings of Topeka in 2012 for the SouthWind Gallery’s Topeka Paint Out where she found a niche capturing urban scenes of historic downtowns and other landmarks all across Kansas. After almost 3 years of exhibiting her series, “Prairie Structures”, it is now time to return to the Topeka scene using her color-infused style.
The Topeka in Color exhibit is meant to inspire the viewer to see our city in a new way and to encourage people to spend more time exploring and enjoying our beautiful city. By using super-saturated colors and a modern graphic look, Becky makes the concrete, native limestone, brick, and metal pop with an energizing spirit by incorporating the painting with inspirational colors that enhance the beautiful diversity of these historic buildings. Her hope is that these works of art excite you, into making the Topeka’s urban scene a part of your daily life.
Becky will have originals, prints and notecards available for sale. See more of her art online at her website www.dragerstudios.com.
