Artists’ Work To Be Displayed At Library
“View from the Mind,” an exhibit of mixed media by Sally Downing will be on display in Salina Public Library’s Gallery 708 from Oct. 4-Nov. 28. A reception for the artist will be from 5-7 p.m. Nov. 7, in conjunction with First Thursday Art Rush.
The exhibit will included small-scale collages using acrylic paint, textured paper, markers, chalk and charcoal. Found objects also are used in Downing’s work.
“Being a self-taught artist, the creation process gives me a sense of freedom,” Downing said. “It allows me to rely on instinct, emotion and intuition, and is also a means of relaxation and satisfaction. I enjoy experimenting with new combinations of media and trying new techniques. Over time I’ve acquired quite a collection of artist’s how-to books that provide inspiration and help refine my technique.”
