Local and budding artists now have a new venue in which to explore their creativity this summer.
Peripheral Spaces, part art gallery and part art studio, is open at Camana Bay on Market Street, across from Bay Market.
The open studio offers artists the opportunity to bring their own supplies and work in the space, while at the same time offering the public an opportunity to peruse the gallery’s displayed works. In addition, everyone is invited to take part in a series of art classes and events, available at a cost, most evenings.
Each day a different guest artist will work from the space, including Chris Duty, Avril Ward, Sue Howe, Renate Seffer and Gordon Solomon.
In the variety of classes offered, visitors can test their skills or try something new with instructor Chris Duty. The schedule changes every week until Aug. 28, with updated schedules published online at plife.ky (click “Peripheral Spaces”).
Design & UnWined at West Indies Wine Company last week featured fashions loaned by Sand Angels and encouraged students to hone their fashion design and sketching skills while enjoying a glass of wine. Design & UnWined is set to repeat on Aug. 24.
