This Month's Artist Exhibition

 

Shining the Light on the Everyday, Paintings by Mike Henry

 
 
I began painting twelve years ago after taking twenty-five years “off.”  What seemed to be a hobby quickly turned into a passion and I found myself constantly composing scenes before me and thinking about the myriad of possible ways to paint them.  I continue to enjoy challenges and rewards as I pursue this passion.  A goal of mine is to become a stronger painter every year. Through inspiration, composition, value and color I want to communicate to the viewer my love of light as it passes through the filter of this soul named Mike Henry.


A favorite quote of mine from Annie Dillard’s book Pilgrim at Tinker Creek sums up my “condition:”

“It is my leisure as well as my work, a game.  It is a fierce game I have joined because it is being played anyway, a game of both skill and chance, played against an unseen adversary – the conditions of time – in which the payoff, which may suddenly arrive in a blast of light at any moment, might as well come to me as anyone else.  I stake the time I’m grateful to have, the energies I’m glad to direct.”


The virtual gallery opens on Friday, July 31. Join us to "meet the artist" and to view and learn about his work.

Artist Talk will go live at 4 pm. Click here to view.
