6:00 pm First Thursday

On Thursday, October 6, William King Museum of Art hosts an opening reception for two
new exhibits from 6 – 8 p.m. Amanda Richardson’s Fell off the Parade Float opens in the Panoramic Gallery with a collection of paintings that explore and dissect the mundane. Reflecting on her series she states, “Everything is alive with psychedelic vibrancy and technicolored yawning. I see the way out in the clearing. It involves paintings of unknown friends. Sometimes especially at the most mundane moments, I think I have dreamed this before.”

The Student Gallery offers a collection of artwork by school age children from the tri-cities. This month instructors Carlene Presnell and Sue Lepsch present works of art in pastel, watercolor, pencil, and computer art by the student group, Young@Art. The artists range in age from 7 to 17 and represent some of the finest art by students in the region.

Admission to this event is free and open to the public.
