Opening Night, September 4th, 2010
A large open space greets you when you walk into the Children’s Gallery. The front windows allow natural light into the gallery while the track lights highlight the art work. This is a working gallery: there is a constant and cheerful flow of students and visitors.
There are two walls in the gallery that receive equal attention from a visitor. Watercolor art works by Terry Arroyo-Mulrooney from the last decade are featured. The subjects of the art include flowers, landscapes and people. The theme of the exhibit is Terry's hometown of sunny South Florida. Her art has a transparent effect because of how she uses watercolor paints.
Terry Arroyo-Mulrooney has a special touch with her watercolors of landscapes and plants. There are patios, waterfalls, gardens, beaches, trees, flowers, and fruit. Each watercolor claims a calm moment of stunning and transparent colors found in nature. There are vibrant reds, soothing blues and greens, and neutral earth tones. Light elegantly highlights a flower, a leaf, or the flow of water. Through her paintings, Terry shares a sense of peace and simplicity that reminds you to stop and appreciate the natural world. The collection of her watercolor paintings at the Children’s Gallery is a wonderful example of how natural light serves to enhance beauty in this world.
The Terry Arroyo-Mulrooney Natural Light & Beauty Through Watercolor exhibit is on display through September 30th, 2010.
