The ASSOCIATION OF GRAND PRAIRIE ARTISTS’ meeting will begin at 6:30 pm on Monday, March 6th at the Grand Prairie Chamber of Commerce.
The presenter Monday is James Behan who always finds ways to give a lift to our creative inclinations.
James Behan’s current works are paintings that are non-objective reflections on currents such as water, air and time; as well as photographic images that focus on myth. He will present his new work and discuss processes related to both painting and photography. These works reflect “on the instability of being in the here-now, how life flows gently and terribly, a calm stream or turbulent river, without warning or regret. My art is the residue of processed desire.”
He lives and works in
, where he earned an MFA in painting from Southern Methodist University.
