November is all about nature at Art Ventures.
The gallery will feature work by painter Barry Thomas and photographer Craig Underwood that focuses on scenes from the natural world at a new show set to open on Friday, Nov. 9.
The show will feature the large, impressionistic paintings of Thomas, and photographs by Underwood taken primarily around the Buffalo National River area in Arkansas.
“The paintings I create come from my family, my love of nature, and my deeply spiritual heart and bones,” Thomas said of the new show.
“As I roam I look for scenes that speak to me about the beauty of the great outdoors,” Underwood said of his work in the new show. “I don’t want to merely capture an image, I want to tell a story that evokes a feeling of discovery.”
The show will kick off with an opening reception set for 6-8 p.m. on Nov. 9. After that, the show will remain on display through the month of November.
Also on exhibit in November is Elemental, featuring the works of oil painter Amy Eichler, public artist Brandon Bullette, watercolor artist Gary Johnson and mixed media artist Denice Nicholson.
The reception is free to attend, and open to the public. Live music and refreshments will also be provided at the event.
