June First Friday Artist Reception
June 7 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
We are excited to feature the works of Beth Nilges-Nehamkin during June’s First Friday event! She is an amazing artist, who you won’t want to miss. Here is a a little background on her. We hope to see you in June!
At the head of the movement for artistic and spiritual expression in Northeast Ohio is Beth Nilges-Nehamkin, a long-time participant in nonprofit art organizations and creator of psychedelic works. In the work she designs, Nilges-Nehamkin makes powerful statements about the earth and its creatures as well as the aspects of ourselves that we must maintain. A guiding figure in her work is her foundation of mythology and philosophy. Her commentary on mind, spirit, and body are conveyed through vibrant color palettes, expertly arranged imagery, and in every dot and pattern.
Nilges-Nehamkin creates paintings and prints, appealing to any person with a creative mind and a willingness to dream. Her pieces feature many animals, including but not limited to birds, horses, frogs, and turtles: symbols of freedom, peace, and Mother Earth. For a free spirit at heart, these conversation pieces invite friends and family to discuss their meaning at length while also inspiring you. For collectors of incredibly unique craftsmanship, you will find these irreplaceable works to be gems in any household or gallery. And, as said by George Eliot, “These gems have life in them: their colors speak, say what words fail of.”
Ultimately, Nilges-Nehamkin’s goal in making each spectacular ornament of color is to kindle relationships with other artists, inspire creative interest, and rejuvenate the presence of art in nearby communities. In purchasing these artworks, you will be gaining a bright splash of color in any drab space and an interesting conversation to delight many.
