Fresh Gallery

Fresh Gallery presents Featured Artists Becky Lewis Smith and Wesley Horton.

Becky Lewis Smith: Works of abstract expressionism caught my imagination from high school and before. Paintings of modern artists such as Diebenkorn, De Koonig, and Thiebaud were foundational. Drawings done by Rembrandt, the discoveries of ancient art, and even nature itself served, too, as inspirations for my work. All of these artists, influences, and many more led me to pursue a BFA degree in painting & drawing.

Abstract expressionism is a way for me to convey the energy, rhythm, mood, and movement of the life I see and feel all around me. … Recent themes of my work include Figures, Delta Cotton, Metamorphosis and Just Desserts. I work primarily in oils, pastels, charcoal, and mixed media.

Wesley Horton:  I’m a creator of art, primarily pottery. With clay, I feel there is no other medium closer in connection to the earth. In ceramics, mystery is exhibited in every piece, from designing a concept to creating a piece and firing it; multiple variables create unexpected results. Ceramics are a fun challenge for me, and I enjoy the infinite techniques I’m learning throughout my journey. Although my main tool is the pottery wheel, nothing captivates me more than hand building a ceramic sculpture. I believe sculpture pulls the strings of my creativity and increases interest in my work.

These artists also will be on hand for a Second Saturday Art Walk reception 3-6 p.m. with wine and light appetizers.
