BY BARBARA M. TOBIAS –
The May exhibit at Mena Art Gallery is called “BFF Art Show” and the two ladies make quite a team.
Gilda Meyers does a wide variety of work: exquisite pen and ink drawings, woodcarvings, jewelry, and note cards to name just a few. It is always fun to see what new ideas she has come up with since her last art show.
Patricia Trulock has been fascinated with what she can find through the lens of her camera since her mother gave her a Brownie when she was eleven. Gilda says she received one as well, but the magic for her has always been in the things she can create with other art tools—not the camera.
Both are happy to be able to share their vision of the world with others who may not have realized the beauty of a rainy day from a front porch, or the thrill of seeing something beautiful emerge from a piece of driftwood that someone else might have tossed on the woodpile. And both agree that their artwork represents what they have experienced in life.
Plan to come to the reception on Saturday, May 6, from 1 to 3 pm at the gallery: 607 Mena Street. It’s a great opportunity to meet both of the artists and get to know them a little better. The exhibit will be on display throughout the month of May during regular gallery hours: 11 am to 2 pm Tuesdays and 10 am to 3 pm Wednesdays through Saturdays.
