The sun in streaming through the windows of Canary Gallery as we await with anticipation the prediction of Birmingham Bill tomorrow on Groundhog Day, one of my favorite holidays! Stop by for a lovely glass of wine or craft beer as you enjoy this spectacular day.
While the Gallery is reserved for private event tonight, Friday, November 9, you may still enjoy the magical art of the Gallery! Visit us tomorrow from 11 a.m. til 8 p.m. to make your selection and purchase while losing yourself in the soundtrack of Lala Land or Amy Winehouse:) See you soon.
It delights me when Canary Gallery is chosen as a venue for a celebration because I know someone creative will bring in a color for decor which miraculously jumps off canvases throughout the Gallery. This color may have never been revealed or obvious, however, adding the hue, whether in a cake, ribbons, table clothes or napkins, calls a variation out of the paintings. A perfect example from this past weekend was an amazing wedding cake by culinary artist Alethea Kendrick Cowie. The blush, ever so slightly in the icing (and linens) softly glowed in every work of art in the Gallery. That’s the thing about color: it brings happiness.
Evalynn Ngamau, student at the Alabama School of Fine Arts and volunteer at the Birmingham Museum of Art, visited Canary Gallery and discovered a symbol in the works of artist Isabelle Gautier, namely: a scarf. A first generation in her family from Kenya, Evalynn was moved by the influence Africa held on Isabelle's paintings.
Isabelle's works will be on exhibit for 30 days; please visit Canary Gallery to view her incredible paintings.
