A Walk Through the Park

Mill Creek MetroParks presents A Walk Through the Park showcasing works from local artist Thomas Sewickley. The exhibit will feature works of Mill Creek MetroParks in a single, passing moment in time by using soft pastels on sandpaper using a heavy color palette to add energy and to manipulate temperature and contrast. Sewickley chooses sandpaper as his canvas as it allows multiple layers of pigment to be laid down creating a more painterly surface. This free exhibit will be displayed April 6, 2024, through July 7, 2024, within the Weller Gallery inside the Davis Center at Fellows Riverside Gardens, during normal operating hours of Tuesdays - Sundays, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., closed Mondays.
