“Looking for Illume”, “Nobody is Perfect” and “Texas: A Panoramic Journey”

July 3 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us at the Julia C. Butridge Gallery for the Artist Reception for “Looking for Illume” by Kaelyn Provost, “Nobody is Perfect” by Natasha Kanevski, and “Texas: A Panoramic Journey” by Danika Ostrowski.

“Looking for Illume” is a collection of work by Kaelyn Provost who experiments with figures, abstraction, and light. Using oil paint, pastels, and assemblage, Kaelyn’s work acts as a representation of our physical and spiritual bodies. Abstract elements are formed from magnified details of the body, while figures are depicted with unique colors and values. Some pieces feature exposed white canvas, symbolizing the inner light that connects our body, mind, and soul to foster wellness and balance. Through this vibrant expression, the artist emphasizes grace, compassion, and self-love, highlighting personal worth beyond excessive productivity and internalized limiting beliefs.

Natasha Kanevski creates monochromatic abstract sculptures on canvas using large rough strokes and course sculptural elements. Her work reflects the roughness, wrinkles, irregularities, and cracks that emphasize humanity, revealing essence, delicacy, purity, completeness, and the fact that we are infinitely beautiful in our fragility and mortality. We are simple, imperfect, and impermanent. Just as we do not have to be perfect, smooth, or precisely fitted, artwork does not have to be done with delicate invisible strokes.

Experience the vast and diverse landscapes of Texas in larger-than-life paintings by Danika Ostrowski. From the rugged Big Bend to the rolling Hill Country, immerse yourself in vibrant scenes that capture the essence of the Lone Star State.

All Julia C. Butridge Gallery events are free and open to all.
