The Walters Cultural Arts Center (527 E. Main St., Hillsboro) invites the community to experience the new exhibition, Layers, as part of the First Tuesday Art Walk on February 4 from 5-8 p.m. The three featured artists, Nancy Helmsworth, Amy Ferron, and Doug Anderson, play with constructs of flow, movement, and change resulting in a highly evocative and diverse body of work. Guitarist and Hillsboro High School District Una Voz Mariachi Member, Melina McGlothen, will perform in the lobby from 5-6:30 p.m. and an artist walk-and-talk with Nancy Helmsworth and Doug Anderson will take place from 6:30-7 p.m. Enjoy a hands on activity creating colorful torn paper landscapes, along with light refreshments provided with thanks to our supporting sponsor, Decadent Creations.
Works by painter and mixed media artist Nancy Helmsworth explore contradictory images of time, stacked meaningfully in bright imaginative horizon lines, while Amy Ferron creates visual elements of flow by combining abstract landscapes and unique upcycled atlases, maps, and charts. Watercolor and acrylic painter Doug Anderson examines the concept of swash by creating a sense of “ever-changing elements,” which “are constantly being rearranged into countless temporary compositions.”
First Tuesday Art Walk is free, open to the public, and takes place on the first Tuesday of every month throughout Downtown Hillsboro from 5 – 8 p.m. Exhibitions at the Walters Cultural Arts Center are open Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. – 9 p.m., and Friday from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. The Walters is located at 527 E.
