Firefly, New art show featuring art work by Victoria Howard
An exciting new art show featuring original drawings and paintings of birds, flowers and fireflies will begin at the Bailey Museum on May 13. The exhibition, Firefly: Color and Lines of Nature, New artwork by Victoria Howard, will include many small works in mixed media.
There will be a public reception to meet Ms. Howard at the Bailey Museum at 7:00 PM on Saturday, May 14 with hors d’oeuvres and drinks. The artwork will be available for sale.
“This series, Firefly, reflects on my relationship to experiences in Michigan and illustrates my deep love for nature and natural elements, and the ephemeral preciousness of our world,” Victoria Howard said.
Howard has regularly visited South Haven and for the past two has been studying the works of Liberty Hyde Bailey. A resident of the Los Angeles area, she is a graduate of the prestigious Art Center College of Design in Pasadena and she holds a Masters Degree from the University of Southern California.
She has taught for 30 years to individuals of all ages and predominantly those with disabilities. She has coordinated the Living Arts Program for the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs which focused on bringing art classes to hospitals, at-risk children and adult care facilities. She continues to teach part-time.
The exhibition will continue until June 18, 2016.
The exhibition is supported by a grant from the Michigan Council for Arts & Cultural Affairs and the National Endowment for the Arts.
