Main Gallery: JUNE Members Show

Opening Reception: Friday, June 5, 5-8pm
During June, Gallery Underground also features a new exhibit of members’ work in the Main Gallery, including sculpture, glass, ceramics, watercolor, oil, acrylic and mixed media.
Gallery Underground’s Featured Artist for June is Jackie Afram. Says Afram of her work: “I have enjoyed creating paintings with oils for over 40 years. I often use photos I have taken or family and friends give me to create my painting. Sometimes I use one photo and other times several for a painting. I don’t have a particular style but try to use what I think goes best with the subject. I love the variety one can get with different mediums or using palette knife or various types of brushes. The primary focus my June “Featured Artist” paintings is our granddaughter Rose Joy. She is true to her name and once she developed her curls she was an irresistible subject. I worked from photos I took of her and our daughter took of Rose and her father. You can see from whom she inherited her hair color. The curls come from her mom. I didn’t place the pens in her hands. She fell in love with them well before her 22 months.”
