November Exhibition: Lindsay Godfrey

Birch Grove in Winter by Lindsay Godfrey

ArtSpot Presents: Lindsay Godfrey
Artist Reception on Friday, November 5th from 4-7 pm
ArtSpot Gallery inside Flicks

ArtSpot inside Flicks presents November’s artist Lindsay Godfrey. This exhibit will be showing through the month, from November 1st through November 29th. The opening reception will take place on Friday, November 5th from 4-7 pm; refreshments are provided.

This is Lindsay’s first solo exhibit with ArtSpot. Working with large as life canvas sizes, Lindsay’s use of vibrant color grabs the viewer’s attention, drawing them into the landscapes as if transported directly into the painting. Lindsay, a native of Montana, has been drawing and painting since she could first put a pencil in her hand, using them to broaden her perception of the world. Lindsay states, “I paint for personal expression and simply because it makes me happy. I want the joy that my artwork provides for myself to be realized by the viewer.” With nature as Lindsay’s inspiration she shares the following, “I love to manipulate the paint to imitate textures produced in nature and I am exploring the depiction of light. Natural luminosity fascinates me and in these pieces I have only begun to explore the perception of light on a flat surface.”

Support your local artists and art community by meeting with Lindsay Godfrey on Friday, November 5 from 4-7pm at Flicks and then taking part in the First Friday Art Walk, which includes an opening reception at Glasgow Goodkind Gallery from 5-9pm.

ArtSpot’s December show is a community show. This exhibit is open to all residents of Valley County.
