to exhibit artist Slacks
(February 2010) Acclaimed Indiana artist Tom
Slack will be presenting a series of oil paintings that portray his
impression of the people and places of Madison, Ind., in a special exhibit
at Joeygs Restaurant & Nightclub, 218 E. Main St. The exhibit
will run from Feb. 9 through March 10.
An opening reception for the exhibit is planned from 2
p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 13.
Whenever we look at anything, we are drawn to what
glows versus what is flat. The shiny reflections in wet roads, sunlight
through flower petals, the highlighted colors that are more easily seen,
and the halo on an edge of a silhouette are all examples of glow.
Rather than concentrate on the actual objects, I create a feeling or
atmosphere and then work the representation of the items in afterwards.
I have attempted to portray this glow in my paintings.
