Your right brain is where your imagination and creativity can be found. Music and art appreciation, insight and intuition can all be found there. If you are like most of us, election years and holidays work very little of these fun sides of the brain. So with 2016 behind us, maybe it’s time to play with our right brains.
Falling Rivers Gallery and its parent organization, the Stanly Arts Guild can help. We are a collection of artists with a mission to connect with and inspire other artists as well as to connect local artists with people who may be interested in seeing or buying their work. We can help you take your right brain for a leisurely stroll, a brisk walk, or ballroom dancing!
The quickest and easiest fun thing to do is to take a walk through our gallery. We have a wide variety of artists and mediums you can spend some time with. You can chat with an artist to learn what inspires them, or study the pieces that interest you and see where your mind wanders.
When you are ready for a bit more, our monthly Guild meetings are open to the public and almost always have a guest speaker to demonstrate a particular artistic method. Meetings are the first Thursday of every month at 6:30 PM. And you can join the Guild for only $17.50 right now. Call the gallery or sign up for our newsletter to get more info.
For a little more right brain fun, we offer art painting parties and workshops for folks who want to try their hand at something new. Art of the Vine and Happy Hour with Harley are painting and wine parties where you get to try your hand at acrylics with the gentle guidance of an instructor and the beverage of your choice.
Painting workshops are scheduled based on interest, so if there is something you would like to try, give us a call. Sign up for e-mail notifications if you want to know when workshops happen.
If you already have the art bug, we have 3 art shows every year with cash prizes for local and regional artists. And we are always looking for new artists to join our gallery. We would love to see your work and will provide whatever help you may need to help make you successful.
So stop by the gallery and introduce your right brain to a little fun.
