Terina Gillette: Temperance: An Expose of Emotion
Opening reception: Friday, August 4, 5:00-9:00 PM
Exhibition hours are Monday-Friday, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM.
“Temperance: An Expose of Emotion” is a journey through color, texture, and raw expression. The works reflect a myriad of feelings influenced by the artist’s psychology background and each piece is symbolic of a particular moment of personal emotional expression from the artist. Elements of nature are integrated throughout the collection as an additional component of emotion to bring her view of the world full circle in experiencing and expressing a multitude of emotions. “Emotion is the essence that influences our entire thought process, and ultimately it culminates our mental state and world view,” says Terina Gillette. “Emotions allow us to experience life fully.”
