Hotel Vandivort – Art Walk Sponsor

Hotel Vandivorta proud Art Walk sponsor, features Artist Betty Parnell for First Friday Art Walk and the Hotel V In Party, each Wednesday in June!

Artist Statement: “I love color.  I am moved and transfixed by COLOR.

“When I paint I see what my eyes feel.  I see colors, and how light dances off one and hides in the shadow of another.

“My paintings begin with a blank canvas or wood panel.  Gestural markings appear, and energy infuses the process.  Squiggles, slashes, drips, swooshes, mark making, some thin and fine, some heavy, thick and dark, begin to appear.  I layer acrylic paint, pastels, water colors, and acrylic ink, layer some more, scrape, then remove, uncovering an abstract language of colors, textures, and shapes.  What the paint reveals determines the outcome.  …

“My work is an invitation to see and feel.  The viewer needs options to experience as I need options to create.   Each painting is unique with every stroke, swipe, or drip being its own adventure.” – Betty Parnell

Note: Hotel Vandivort is an Early Bird and a Night Owl Art Walk location: Open 24-7-365
