Art from the Heart
Submitted By Carol "Manasse" Hamilton
Art from the Heart is an exhibit that will highlight spiritually themed art and how personal faith has influenced the artist. On Saturday, October 9, three local artists will be actively painting and exhibiting their creations on the front lawn of Park Victoria Baptist church in Milpitas. A variety of painting styles and subject matter will be on display.
Joanne Reed, a local artist who has had her work exhibited at the De Young Museum and is best known for her renderings of tree-studded hills, will share her faith-inspired artwork with the public. Her painting entitled "Come Unto Me" has been widely reproduced and depicts the open hands of an approachable creator.
The art of Roballoo is rooted in his imagination but grounded in his deep personal faith. His kiddie-cubist-cartoon-folk art has been made using everything from paint and pixels to watercolor and recycled waste. A variety of his work will be on display, including the "Brotherhood of Penguins", "the Power of Prayer" and "Reflections of the Heart."
Carol Manasse, a contemporary cubist, will be exhibiting some of her unique geometric portrayals as well. Her mesmerizing acrylic paintings challenge the viewer's perception of depth, reality, and motion. Inspired by scenes of beauty, Carol's most popular subjects include horses and graceful women. Several biblical scenes will be on exhibit; most notable her time-lapse depiction of Christ's death, resurrection and ascension entitled "He is Risen." Carol says she wasn't raised in a church, but that finding faith as a teenager has inspired her to honor God with her abilities.
The event is free. The public is invited to peruse the exhibit, converse with the artists and observe the creative process.
