What: Flowers: Isabel Cano Exhibition

currently on display through April 8th

Where: Black Box Performing Arts Theatre, 318 E Hickory St, Denton, TX

Visual Arts Society of Texas (VAST) member Isabel Cano, of Denton, currently has an exhibition of six acrylic paintings at the Point Bank Black Box Performing Arts Theatre through April 8, 2016. She has been painting in acrylic for five years and also has experimented with pastel and photography. The paintings on exhibit are from her series “Flowers.”

Cano has been a member of VAST for nine years and served three years on the Board of Directors including a year of service as Vice-president in charge of programs. She has exhibited in a number of the art society’s juried and non-juried exhibitions. She credits the organization with inspiring her to work and develop her skills as a painter.

Artist Statement:

My series “Flowers” is a study in shape, color, light and shadow. I create these paintings to give the flowers a much longer life, in hopes that more people will get to see the one that captivated me. The purpose of the bigger scale is to create an impact that will force as many viewers as possible, to see the beauty that would otherwise go unnoticed.

I create art to share with the viewer a slice of what and how, I perceive my surroundings.

The Black Box Theatre Exhibition is co-sponsored by Denton Community Theatre. Black Box hours are Monday and Wednesday, 1:00 – 4:00 pm and Friday, 10:30 am – 1:30 pm. The art may also be viewed during any of the performances at the Black Box.
