Orisons Features Three New Artists
Second Saturday, June 9th, the gallery will host a reception for Kristine Byars, Kim Englishbee, and Barbara Mason. These three ladies participated in our April “Art in the Making” event in conjunction with Arts in Bloom. They enjoyed their day in McKinney, and received a very favorable response from our clients. Join us in celebrating their original art during our Second Saturday Arts Reception, 7p-10p. Barb Mason will be demonstrating outside the gallery during the early part of the evening.
Byars is an accomplished artist widely exhibited in the DFW Metroplex. Her bright colors and cleverly cropped compositions give her western imagery an award-winning edge. Byars’ art will be featured on the poster of Chestnut Square’s new Cowboy Days celebration this fall.
Whether of livestock or landscapes, Englishbee’s carefully crafted paintings draw the viewer into an elegant spaciousness that grants her subject a unique preeminence.
Mason’s innovative watercolors sometimes include a literal cut edge, making her florals dimensional. (Must see in person to appreciate!) Mason’s pastels are lush, richly colored with surprising elements.
