First Friday Art Walk – July 2018
Discover Art Downtown at NexLynx Gallery of Arts, Friday July 6th from 5pm to 8pm, to view the beautiful watercolor and silk paintings by Geri Cummings, during our First Friday Art Walk.
From a very early age, Geri Cummings loved art. Her first image of herself at the age of 5 was in front of an easel with a palette in one hand and a paintbrush in other while wearing a French beret.
Whether it’s watercolor or silk painting, Geri’s favorite subject matter are things that bring a sense of calm when she looks at them. A tranquil place to go in the middle of our chaotic lives. She loves going to the beaches in Florida where the blue-green waves sparkle against the sugar white sand as sound of the waves drown out the modern world. Painting is her escape, her mini vacation, so many of her paintings are from photos taken while at the beach. Others are quiet places that she’s discovered without leaving Kansas.
Geri has been under the tutelage of professional artist, Diane Lawrence for many years and even took a workshop from world renown watercolor artist, Vlad Yeliseyev. Currently president of Sunflower Silkers, the local chapter of an international organization for Silk Painters, where she had a silk painted blouse accepted into the SPIN garment fashion show at the Silk Painters International Festival.
