Maple City artist Carol Spaulding’s “Garden Palette” colors Center Gallery at Lake Street Studios, 6023 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor. The exhibition of floral still lifes opens Aug. 2 with a 6 p.m. reception.
Spaulding’s exhibition is a survey of the flowers in her garden and the local landscape. In this accessible vegetation she looks for the basics: shapes, lines, movement and color, and translates them using oil paint, gouache, collage and monotype printing techniques.
As part of the exhibition Spaulding will conduct a painting demonstration at Center Gallery, Aug. 4, 1 p.m.
“Garden Palette” continues through Aug. 8. For more information call Lake Street Studios, 231/334-3179.
