Traverse City artist Lisa Flahive paints the immediacy of local streets, beaches, cafes and jazz clubs. Her view of these diverse worlds will be on display at Center Gallery, 6023 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor, Sept. 2-15. A reception opens the exhibition on Sept. 2, 6-8 p.m.
Working in a range of water-based paints, Flahive immerses herself in the location she’s painting. Working quickly, she captures a place’s energy, the people moving through it, the music coming out of it. She is artist-in-residence for Chateau Chantel Winery in Traverse City, and paints live on the bandstand each week. Flahive also paints and teaches sketching in Chicago.
As part of her exhibition, Flahive will conduct a painting demonstration at Center Gallery on Saturday, Sept. 10, 1 p.m. The event is open to the public. For more information, please call 231/334-3179.
