ABOUT OUR PROGRAM:  It’s your last chance to experience the exhibition The Layers of Meaning: Paintings by Matthew Mayes, a showcase of work by the popular local artist. The exhibition has been a success for Mayes with many clients preparing to take home his kaleidoscopic pieces for their living rooms and businesses when the gallery showing closes. Mayes considers his vibrant array of paintings to be a study of color perception, definition, and composition.

“The viewer’s reality is based on how my artwork makes them feel,” Mayes said about his work. “Art should awaken your senses and test your boundaries between perception and reality. Either way, you are never wrong with what YOU see in art and how art makes YOU feel.”

Hurry to the Central Library’s Fourth Floor Gallery by close of business on Saturday to view—or purchase!—intricate acrylic paintings bold in color, texture, and depth.
