One of my favorite painters, Ryan Scully, will be visiting Tacoma this week for the opening of a group exhibition, Circle of Friends (from Brooklyn to Tacoma) at Fulcrum Gallery. Join me in seeing the work of this talented artist in person.
I’ll be attending the opening reception on Thursday night (September 17) from 6 – 9pm. There will be an artist talk on September 18. The exhibition runs through November 15. More info on their Facebook event page.
Ryan’s art is stunning online but you’ll see just how extraordinary it is, once you’re up close in person. His work draws out a sense of wonder in the viewer, inviting us to discover other worlds and emotionally connect with abstract forms.
