Gallery at Laughing Dog presents "Kelly Lonergan Recent Paintings"~Armchair ArtWalk for First Fridays JUNE

 —  —

Laughing Dog Studios, 82 S. Main St, Harrisonburg VA

Laughing Dog Studios' Art Space, "Gallery at Laughing Dog", presents "Kelly Lonergan: Recent Paintings".

Our "Arm Chair ArtWalk" will be presented at the top of our facebook page at FRIDAY JUNE 5. Please "stop by"! The show will also be available to view in person by appt~see details below.

We are very pleased to showcase recent works in oil on canvas by Kelly Lonergan. Originating in sketchbook drawings, Kelly's scenes of human figures show "outward activities while revealing something going on inside the figures as well. States of consciousness are somewhat altered, whether through reading, a trance, or dancing. Stylistically the paintings are representational, but not realistic. The resulting world, while resembling outward appearances, resonates with unknown realms within us."

All in-person arts events for Downtown Harrisonburg's First Fridays have been canceled for Friday June 5. However, we hope you'll be able to participate in the First Fridays Armchair Artwalk, FRI JUNE 5th 5-8pm, featuring virtual gallery experiences presented by participating downtown venues and Arts Council of the Valley. For a full schedule of events for JUNE FIRST FRIDAYS ARMCHAIR ARTWALK, check and
