Join K12 Gallery & TEJAS for the opening reception of two exhibitions on view from March 10-April 1, 2017. Both exhibits open reception will be on Friday, March 10 from 6:30-8:30pm.

The Children's Galleries spotlight artwork made by talented young artists. K12 Gallery is one of the only spaces in Ohio that has continuous children's exhibitions. In the Gallery, K12 hosts the St. Luke School Student Exhibition, curated and presented by the school and Mrs. Judy Paietta, art teacher. The children's exhibition will feature a collection of artwork created by the K-8th grade students over the duration of the current school year.

TEJAS Gallery features artwork created by local, regional and national artists. TEJAS Gallery hosts acclaimed artist, Peter Clive, Narrative Figure Painting. For over thirty years, Clive has been painting in a realist style using vivid color and strong, dramatic lighting to highlight his subjects. His involvement with painting the figure and its psychological narrative is integral to Peter's paintings which can often be seen in the way he interprets and presents light, shadow, and color. He has been greatly influenced by Seventeenth century Dutch Master painting, especially with how he manipulates light and creates deep space.  Peter considers many of his paintings psychodramas, due the level of psychological implications possible in the work.

The opening reception will include a talk by artist Peter Clive from 6:45-7:15 and a student performance from the St. Luke Choir and a presentation of student art awards from 7:15-8:30.

The event is free and open to the public.
