Opening Of Fire & Water This Friday!


Courthouse Gallery Fine Art invites you to our spring reception

Friday, May 27, 5-7pm


Janice Anthony and Jessica Ives

Courthouse Gallery brings together two artists who approach human interaction with nature in much the same manner despite their dramatically different imagery. Anthony juxtaposes formal English gardens with raging wildfires, threatening our perceived ability to control nature, while Ives explores an active human experience of being immersed in water—wading, splashing, floating, making ripples—relishing the coolness and becoming one with nature.

Spring reception Friday, May 27 from 5–7pm

Artists talk with Jessica Ives
Friday, May 27 at 4pm 

Jessica Ives will speak about kinesthetic intelligence and imagination, mirror neurons firing in the brain, and the healing properties of water. She'll also speak about why she doesn't work en plein air and why, as a landscape painter, she believes it's important to picture herself and others in the landscape more. The event is free and open to the public.
