Art Exhibit Opening Night July 6th!

This is it!  The big night is approaching!  Do not miss the premier opening for artist Dan Newbanks of Alchemist Imaging on July 6th, 2017 at Good Life Cafe (1614 Main Street, Columbia, SC) as part of the ever-popular First Thursday on Main art crawl!

Dan will be showing for the first time in a solo venue, his portfolio of work over the past ten years as an artist.  His work is primarily photographic with “painterly” qualities (a term borrowed from Atlanta artist Thomas Dodd, who along with many others has done much to inspire the work of Dan Newbanks).

 

“The work that I am passionate about are the pieces that use figurative or representative forms to convey thoughts about subjects in psychology, philosophy or mythology in a way that seems to connect with people… I am told often that it speaks to them.”

Dan sees this event as paramount to the future his career, because although he has spent years servicing individuals, commercial clients, and families with his photography, this will solidify his identity as an artist, which he has been fostering for a very long time.

Everything but the Kitchen Sink

…the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes “Awww!”  –  Jack Kerouac

Priscilla Hutto – Debut set

Beauty is so subjective, and yet here we are, with another opportunity to celebrate the beauty and talent of the South.  Sometimes you just know, when you look at someone, you can see it in their eyes.  From the past that haunts them, to the future that lays open in front of them, you know that in this moment, it is the beauty that has the whole thing hanging in a balance.  And when that moment is captured in one afternoon, it can be magical.  Enjoy.

Taunting Beauty – Moriah

There’s a mystery behind those eyes.  She’s beautiful, and she knows it, but there’s also a vulnerability that keeps you at arm’s length.  She knows how to move and how to walk, how to stand, and how to run.  But don’t look too long, because she knows how to break your heart.
