A Walk Through the Park
Fellows Riverside Gardens, Davis Center – Weller Gallery

Mill Creek MetroParks presents A Walk Through the Park showcasing works from local artist Thomas Sewickley. This exhibit will feature works of Mill Creek MetroParks in a single, passing moment in time by using soft pastels on sandpaper using a heavy color palette to add energy and to manipulate temperature and contrast. Sewickley chooses sandpaper as his canvas as it allows multiple layers of pigment to be laid down creating a more painterly surface.

This free exhibit will be on display April 6 through July 7, 2024, within the Weller Gallery inside the Davis Center at Fellows Riverside Gardens, during normal operating hours of Tuesdays – Sundays, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., closed Mondays.

The artist will host a special meet and greet opportunity on June 1, 2024 from 2 – 4 pm in the Weller Gallery.
