HARRISON GALLERY . 6-8 PM . 825 WHITE STREET . KEY WEST, FL
Please join us at Harrison Gallery this Saturday, February 3, from 6-8pm for a special showing of Santa Fe artist, Melinda K. Hall's series "A Love Possessed", that coincides with Undying Love, A Key West Musical. We will also be highlighting new aluminum, charcoal and graphite works by Key West artist Joanne Klein.
Hall was inspired to create her interpretation of this story in a series of 8 paintings entitled, "A Love Possessed". She decided to capture the events in an Ex Voto style. Ex Voto, short for Ex Voto Susepto, is a Latin term "from the vow made", a painted offering often found in churches or shrines in thanksgiving for a miracle received. Because Hall is a narrative painter by nature, this sort of story telling with pictures and words suits her preferred artistic sensibilities and the story of Carl von Cosel and Elena is most certainly woven with the notions of vows, miracles and dark humor.
