Ken Wright Exhibit

Hear the Melody, See the Movement, and Feel the Emotion

In July, our Courtroom Gallery will feature abstract acrylic paintings by Ken Wright.

As you view his work, you become the creator as his work speaks to you. As an abstract artist, Ken's work can leave the viewer with the feeling of landscape imagery.

 

While viewing his work, don't take the first impression, but, linger a while and let the work speak to you. Some viewers will see movement, or dancing figures. Some will see what may resemble a horse. Early in his career, Ken's work was more representational, but then his work took on more of the abstract form. Thus the title of this exhibition, Hear the Melody, See the Movement, and Feel the Emotion
