“Sanctuaries of the Southwest” with Bobby Lee Krajnik
February 8, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Join Us for a night at the gallery introducing the solo exhibition of Bobby Lee Krajnik!
During the “Western Spirit” Artwalk on February 8th, experience both the spirit of the Old West and Scottsdale’s contemporary art scene as they come together is Krajnik’s “Misiones”.
“My Misiones paintings are my interpretation of the old chapels and churches of the Southwest region. I have always been drawn to the weathered exteriors, hand construction and beauty of these sacred places. I love to travel and visit many of the churches I paint. I utilize photographs, many historical, (my favorite are the old black and whites!) then I sketch multiple images of various perspectives to decide on composition. Then, a few value and color sketches and I am now ready to start working on the canvas.
I am often asked why I paint churches. During a very difficult time in my life, about seven years ago, I started solely painting small vibrantly colored church images. This work helped me through that hard time. And, I’ve been painting churches ever since.” says Krajnik.
Bobby Lee will be revealing six new works at the exhibition in addition to the gallery’s current collection.
Come and experience this this captivating collection of Misiones, meet the artist, and join us for refreshments and live music.
