We are privileged to have the artwork of Denise Kanter Allen displayed at the Wilson Downtown Gallery for another month. If you stopped by for our August First Fridays reception then you saw her trademark whimsical, vibrant, and uniquely eye-catching acrylic paintings. But in September there will be even more of her talented work on display – so stop back in and see what’s new!
A little bit about the artist:
[Denise] favors acrylic paints for her portrait-making but continues to explore all types of media, as well as collaborate with other artists. Denise is co-founder of Art Lotto portrait show, co-founder of Artery collaborative troupe, volunteer and supporter of the downtown local arts scene and events. Denise enjoys participating in downtown Harrisonburg’s First Fridays art exhibitions and working for Friendly City Food Cooperative.
But each time I finish a painting, there is a little piece of me captured and placed in front of an audience. These are my paintings; painted pieces of self; moments of my life made into a piece of art.
