Water Street Studios New Exhibitions: “A Journey of New Beginnings” by Kerri Ann Reavis and “Seeing Through Masks" by Gordon Parker

Water Street Studios’ Dempsey Family Gallery will feature the work of Kerri Ann Reavis in a solo show titled “A Journey of New Beginnings.”

Kerri Ann will be displaying a wide range of her primarily abstract paintings. She writes, “Journey with me for the last five years of my life in Expressionism. I never knew I would make art as a career until the age of 42. It was then that I found my true calling as it brought forth changes inside of me. My life's desire to express myself came easily through my work, which has created many new beginnings and discoveries along the way."

Gordon Parker’s exhibition titled, “Seeing Through Masks” will be displayed in the Kane County Chronicle Gallery located on the second floor of Water Street Studios. Gordon Parker’s artwork focuses on the figurative complexity of women. He writes, “I break these complexities into simple yet dramatic lines and colors. The mood is always calm, confident, and full of subliminal feelings, which reproduces the essence and beauty of women. While I use a variety of materials and processes in each project, my methodology is consistent. The subject matter of each body of work determines the material and ultimate form of the work.”

The opening receptions will be held on May 11th from 6:00-9:00 p.m.  In addition to viewing the work and meeting the artists who created it, there will also be small selection of appetizers by Gaetano’s Batavia, a bar featuring beer from Solemn Oath Brewery and wine. All proceeds from bar sales go to support arts programming at Water Street Studios. $5 suggested donation at the door.

All exhibits continue until June 3, 2018. Thank you to our gallery event sponsor, K. Hollis Jewelers.

Opening receptions will be held Friday, May 11th, from 6:00-9:00 p.m.  

The shows in both galleries will be on view during regular public gallery hours: Friday, 2-6 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday, 12 to 4 p.m. at 160 S. Water Street in Batavia.
