March Friday for the Arts will showcase work from Rev. Clyde Johnson, Valerie Daniels and Dr. Cynthia Owens. Stop in to check out some of the best that Petersburg has to offer!
March 13th 6pm to 9pm
"Speak" features the wood carvings of Rev. Clyde Johnson, Sr., a self-taught wood sculptor for over 42 years. His work centers around how God is speaking to him as he begins to carve and create. He works in cypress, oak, poplar, pine and cedar. His work speaks of the awesomeness of God. He will be joined by Valerie Daniels and Dr. Cynthia Owens.
Pulling from Americana Art influences, Valerie Daniels creates vivid, serene environments. After retiring from Dominion Power in 2010 she started pursuing her interest in painting taking pointers from local artist and teacher; Sheila Holland at The Globe.
Dr. Cynthia Owens will be showcasing her truly unique handmade jewelry. "Jewelry design is my way of communicating with The Creator. It is my way of taking what I see in nature and the physical world and transposing it into a piece of art that represents what God wants me to share with others. Always driven to work with my hands and after running out of wall space to display my paintings, I decided to create wearable art that I could share with others."
