The Earlville Opera House is thrilled to exhibit the work of two talented artists, Jim Loveless and Mike Townsend, from November 5 – December 21, and will be hosting an opening reception on November 5 from 12-3 PM.
In the East Gallery we will be featuring the work of artists and educator James K. Loveless. Loveless returns to the Earlville Galleries with a stunning retrospective of his work. Art and Art History Professor Emeritus at Colgate University, his artwork is represented in the collections of over 200 private collectors across the US, UK, and Canada and in over 40 private collections in and around the Hamilton area. Says Loveless of his work, “The only figure I care about is the single viewer looking at my painting.… Everything else is ideology.”
Mike Townsend will be featured in the Arts Café. As a graduate of Mansfield University’s fine art program and Golden Artist Colors, Inc.’s Materials Specialist, one could easily say that artist Mike Townsend is well-acquainted with his medium. “My decades of creating and working with art materials has given me a keen sense of process,” says Townsend. His dynamic and vibrant works feature what the artist himself refers to as “controlled chaos,” and are sure to invite the viewer in for a more in-depth look.
The Earlville Galleries are open Tuesday through Friday 10-5 and Saturdays 12-3. The Earlville Opera House is wheelchair-accessible with a ramp and a lift.
