Christy Andres art exhibit to open
Christy Andres, watercolorist, will open an art exhibit on Friday, December 29 at Paragon on State, 205 W. State St. in partnership with Young @ Art. The opening reception will be from 5:30 to 9 p.m., and the show will run through February 10, 2001.
The exhibit is entitled Angels and Others, and this is one show where Andres gets to paint what she pleasesno mandates.
Andres says, I paint what I remember. I paint what I have experienced. I paint my sadnesses and my joys. What I truly want to express is inside my mind and heart. The child who I paint sometimes reveals my feelings and observations about life. Watercolor has given me that opportunity to bring my personal expressions to the surface of a white piece of paper.
This is the first anniversary of Young @ Art and Paragon on States successful partnership. They have been able to offer exhibit opportunities to six professional Rockford artists and two school groups. Oil and acrylic paintings, mixed media, found objects, photography and ceramics have all been represented in a variety of styles.
