The Paquette Gallery at the Salida SteamPlant is the setting for the opening reception of the work of award-winning artist Padgett McFeely and her solo exhibit “Then and Now.”
“‘Then’ represents a collection of my “wet darkroom” hand-painted black and white photographs; a medium I worked with for over 25 years,” explains McFeely. “‘Now’ represents my digital imagery that consists of combining my original photographs and manipulating them in Photoshop to impart a message. I often find that ravens and crows are the perfect subject matter for bringing forth the ideas and feelings I am working on conveying.”
The opening reception is set for 5:00 p.m.to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, October 13. The evening’s musical guest is keyboardist Jeff Koch.
During the mixer, The Salida Council for the Arts invites attendees to talk to members of the Salida Council for the Arts Board about initiatives you’d like to see for next year.
Their invitation: “Bring your ideas and your soapbox announcements and we’ll see you there.”
