February 21, 2013 – March 29, 2013
Opening reception held on March 8, 2013 from 6-9
(Clayton, MO/February 13, 2013) Watch
the Enchanted Forest come alive in the new exhibit “Over the Rainbow in 3-D” by Vic Mastis. Imagine yourself skipping through the ‘Poppy Field’. Your troubles
will melt like lemon drops as you experience select fantasy landscapes. Mastis has perfected a unique style using gold leaf layered with oil glazes. Her paintings reflect the light and invite you into her perspective of the world.
You won’t see lions, tigers and bears…oh my…but you can take a mystifying journey ‘Into the Woods’.
What does 3-D have to do with art? If you have a crystal ball, you may be able to catch a glimpse of how art and 3-D are intertwined. If not, plan to come to the opening on March 8th from 6-9 pm to find out!
