“For the Love of Art : Unique Perspectives on the Creative Path” works by Neil Orlowski and students from his oil & acrylic painting class
4th Friday Art Walk reception with the artists
January 26 and February 23 5:00 – 7:00 PM
The paintings in this show are the creative fruits of the Downtown Artists, a group who currently comprise the students (and professionals) of an Oil/Acrylic Painting Class that I have had the privilege of teaching now for over 14 years here in Prescott. In those fourteen years, students have naturally come and gone; students ranging from brand-new-to-painting to some who’ve been attending for over 11 years. But this current group is particularly special. They are some of the most dedicated and talented artists I have ever had, and their creativity, willingness, growth, and camaraderie have truly been an inspiration and joy for me to witness.
Gratitude and inspiration are the words that best describe how I feel when we get together each week. Our time together is productive and especially fun–each person brings so much of their unique personality, style, and passion.
We are all on our creative paths, and it has been my joy to be a part of theirs. I hope you enjoy their work as much as I have had the opportunity to see it grow.
