Meet the Artist reception honoring Linda Foley

From: Coopersville

A Meet the Artist reception honors Linda Foley at the Coopersville United Methodist Church, 105 N. 68th Avenue, Coopersville, Michigan on Sunday, January 30, 2011, from 6pm – 7pm.

The Coopersville United Methodist Church is pleased to offer local artists the opportunity to share their work and would like to invite the public to view the latest exhibit. Foley’s watercolor paintings are located in the Fellowship Room where more than 15 pieces will remain on display for the next couple months.

Foley has studied with nationally known artists – Sal Harris, Roland Roycraft, Joe Fettingis, Nita Engle, Liam Chen and Tony Couch – to find solid ways to interpret the glow in her soul. A happy blend of talent, she now revisits music from a different angle. Now a repertoire of music fills her flowing colors, as players in singles, duets and groups take their place in her work. Using human forms as visual connections for light threading through the patterns of dance, her love of moving water is reborn.

Foley explains; “Loving water as I do, it is no wonder that I find Lake Michigan my muse and inspiration. Each new painting is a love affair with the wonderful spontaneity of liquid motion I so often observe along its tidelines. Shorelines, dunes and wetlands lead me into woodland interiors all sun dappled with light's splashes of color as subjects that I love.”

The reception is an opportunity for the community to meet Linda and talk with her about her work. There will be live music (hammered dulcimer/guitar by the Urquharts) and refreshments during the reception, followed by Praise Night! which begins at 7pm in the Worship Center.

This is a FREE Community Event and all are welcome.
