“Stylin’ is Wild” captures the essence of street art, both playful and dramatic, in a colorful new exhibit in the Gallery at the Bankhead Theater. More than two dozen works capture the feel of street art, graffiti art and tattoo-style art. Imaginative interpretations are expressed in pieces that range from striking figurative paintings, abstract images, and mixed media, to photography and small sculpture. Artists in the exhibit include Jon Highland, Camillo Neves, Carole Goodwin, Nancy Saltsman, Courtney Jacobs, Vera Lowdermilk, and more. Curated by the Bothwell Arts Center, “Stylin’ is Wild” runs through August 27, 2017.

An Artists’ Reception for the new exhibit will be held Saturday, July 8, 2017 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.  Free and open to the public, the reception provides an opportunity to admire the works on display and meet some of the artists.  Light refreshments and wine will be offered and live music will be provided by jazz musician Tom Reynolds.
