Check in at the Garland Landmark Museum for the start of a FREE Gallery Walk. At the museum, there will be an exclusive showing of a David Bates original sculpture. David Bates is a nationally acclaimed artist who grew up in Garland, TX and attended Garland High School. Best known for his paintings on canvas or panel, Bates is also prolific in sculpture and works on paper. More than forty museums across the country have work by Bates in their permanent collections.
The gallery shows will continue at Ninth Street Gallery, owned by Michelle Noah, and Epiphany Gallery, owned by Leslie Montena. Attendees can also experience a ‘pop-up gallery at Graceful Laundress featuring work by Garland artists, Julie Chi Tran, Stephanie Chayrez and Mikayla Magee.
Finally, Anne Weary will be celebrating her exhibit opening at the Granville Arts Center. Anne’s summer residence was Casa del Sol, her family ranch in what is now the Garland Spring Creek Preserve, and honed her art by drawing the beautiful nature that surrounded her. Now, Anne is a professional artist, having graduated from the oldest art school in the United States, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Her entire life is a perpetual love affair with the trees and creatures of her forest.
Gallery Walk is free and open to the public, Friday, March 8 from 5-8 p.m.
