The Stokes County Arts Council will host artwork by Courtney Huffman in the Apple Gallery during the month of August.
An opening reception will be held in Huffman’s honor this Friday, July 27th, from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Apple Gallery. The public is invited to come and meet the artist and view the beautiful array of artwork on display.
Huffman, a King native, creates works of art through pen, oil, pastels, and acrylics. Special techniques include combining art with knowledge of the human soul, reflecting the joys and pains that humans experience in life. Huffman is passionate about the outdoors, loves nature, and is interested in people of every culture and chooses to display her observations through her artwork.
This exhibit consists of pen and acrylic which she believes reflects emotion and life. Huffman describes her exhibit as a reflection of her feelings: “Life, the joys and pains.” Some pieces of her artwork are fantasy. Others focus on the pain or happiness of people who live all over the world — people who have been captured during war in other countries, people who are experiencing other forms of emotion, including expressions of joy and contentment with the little things in life.
The viewing of this exhibit and the reception is free and open to the public. The gallery, located at 500 N. Main Street, Danbury, is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call the Stokes County Arts Council at 336-593-8159 or send an email to email@example.com.
