Istvan Gallery Grand Opening this Friday, November 9

Istvan Gallery will open at 1218 N. Western on November 9 from 6 to 11 p.m., with an evening reception that will be open to the public. We will have an open house on Saturday November 10 from 11 to 6 p.m., and Sunday November 11 from 11 to 5 p.m.

The gallery will feature installations by local artists, ranging from sculptors and glass blowers to artists who work in oil, acrylic, watercolor and other media. Featured artists will be Skip Hill and Alyson Atchison.

SKIP HILL will be making a rare presentation of his drawings which combine African American heroes, Folk Art, Kuba tribal textures, and the styles of Romae Bearden, Picasso and Van Gogh.

ALYSON ATCHISON will be showing her first new work in almost two years. Atchison's one–of-a-kind serigraphs are colorful, loud and deceptively pretty. As she confesses, her work is largely autobiographical and has a darker, emotive aspect underneath the pretty surface colors.
