Artist Larry Hill in Conversation | Reception Oct. 12th
6:00--7:00 PM: Social Hour and Viewing
7:00--8:00 PM: Conversation with the Artist, Reading, Q+A
Join us on October 12, 2017 for a FREE reception honoring the abstract expressionist Larry Hill from 6:00PM-8:00PM at the Selma Arts Center.
About Larry Hill: I believe a painting (story) must have an initial dramatic impact and at second glance should include tantalizing nuances of drawing (plotting) and gestures (conflict) to stay alive. I’ve been around a long time and have given much thought to today’s art market. I agree with art critic Kenneth Baker’s assessment of a recent show called, “The Passionate Gesture” at the Hackett-Freedman gallery in San Francisco, featuring first- and second-wave Abstract Expressionists. Baker says, “To this day the art scene still seeks our notion of explosive, unrehearsed paintings more aggressively than ever.” He goes on to reflect on how we action painters have achieved a “certain coherence against all odds that just won’t go away.”

FROM OUR VISITORS
The King of the Chimney Sweeps will forever remain transfixed in my memory. Selma Arts Center should be historically memorialized just based on the talent alone not to mention its captivating architecture and preeminent position as a performing arts center in Central California. Five stars.
I saw Young Frankenstein. It was hilarious and the cast did an excellent job. I will go back again. I hope they have some more comedy, but I'm sure that I will enjoy whatever they decide to run. Thank you to the cast. It's always nice to leave a comedy with sore jaws from smiling and laughing.
Nice, small, intimate venue. Well put together and fun. Something I hope the community supports and uses it to grow their art and entertainment options. Had dinner at George's in downtown a block away. Fun, inexpensive date night.
