1st Saturday – October
October 1, 10:00 am - 7:00 pm
Gallery Opening Reception from 4-7pm:
October Exhibition Opening in The Founders Gallery More Than Words Can Say, mixed media and prose by Johanna Riddle. How appropriate that Johanna Riddle’s exhibition, More Than Words Can Say, will grace The Hub’s Founders Gallery in October. Johanna’s work will feature the interaction between largely two-dimensional art and the written word – and October is National Book Month. Like many artists, Johanna’s work is often inspired by a passage in a book or poem. Likewise, works that did not spring from the written word often inspire Johanna to write about what she just created. Johanna’s exhibition will use both of these pathways to share the connection with the viewer. Finally, Johanna will offer a unique opportunity for exhibition viewers to select from provided written passages and create a “piece of art” that they feel reflects that passage. The creations can be uploaded to a file that Johanna will manage during the exhibition’s run. Come by and see Johanna’s work and get involved. Opening from 4-7pm. Artist’s Talk, 6pm. Exhibition through October 30.
Art Connections 10am-7pm: an inside look at the work of more than 60 local artists. Talk to the artists and learn about the process of creating art. Explore two floors of art in one historic building in the heart of the New Smyrna Beach Arts District.
Live Music 11am-1pm: RhythmWorks outside The Hub. 5-7pm: James Hall in the Lobby.
Talk Art! from 1-2pm: Playing with Light, an informal demo and conversation with Hub artist Judy Pickett.
