ComCenter features new artist Renee Vickery
ComCenter Lakewood Ranch presents “The Chinese Brush Painting of Renee Vickery” as its newest art exhibit, which runs until Oct. 31. Living in Asia for the last 15 years, Vickery worked with world-renowned artists who helped her in developing skill in calligraphy.
Never miss a local story.
“My Chinese brush stroke paintings rely upon the use of traditional implements, ink stick, ink stone, oriental color pigments and Zhuan, or rice paper,” Vickery said. “My painting has been influenced by a long history of art interest which includes the study of Western water colorists to pop art, hard-edge work and collage. This eclectic background has exerted a powerful influence on my current pursuit of the art of Chinese brush painting and the ancient art of calligraphy.”
There is a reception from 5 -7 p.m. Thursday at ComCenter Lakewood Ranch. It is free to the public and complimentary light hors d’oeuvres and wine will be provided. To learn more, please visit her website at www.ren-ahchineseart.com.
