Join Us For the Fall Art Crawl!
gg's Hosts Multiple Artists
You won't want to miss the Fall Art Crawl Friday, September 24, 2021 from 5:30 - 8:30 pm. This year's Fall Art Crawl features more than 70 artists in 40 different Downtown Businesses. We are proud to host multiple artists here at gg's! Meet the artists and authors behind the works being featured.
Belinda derives energy from nature and translate its power through painting. If she can capture that feeling of being overwhelmed, and overpowered, she has done what she set out to do. For her, the darkness in nature is as beautiful as the light—layers of thin oil glazes allow me to capture that depth. Her art is an experiential trek derived from my hiking—thus my desire for large canvases. She wants the viewer to step into the moment: feel the spray of a waterfall, hear the rush of a stream, or embrace the coolness of a shadowy path. She wants them to investigate the light and the dark. Once captured the viewer can take part in the experience and escape into the landscape.
Residing in the Lake Norman area, Cindy Shaw is a full-time impressionist and fine art artist. Shaw draws her energy and peace by spending time outdoors actively exploring, hiking, paddling, traveling, and wildlife watching. While Cindy enjoys painting on location (en Plein air), she is often torn between joining in on the adventures or trying to capture the moments.
