New Exhibits Open at the DCC

Lines ProjectThe Deines Cultural Center in downtown Russell has two new exhibits up: Eric Carbrey's Lines Project and Brenda Smith's Zentangle.

Carbrey creates geometric art that feels as if the shapes are growing into their current frozen positions. He tries to create complexity with simplicity, and at the same time simplicity with complexity.

The opening reception for Carbrey's show will be Sunday, August 24 from 2 to 5 PM. Come meet Carbrey and see his paintings this weekend.

His work will be on display in the north gallery from now until September 26.

Smith's work is in the upstairs gallery and open for viewing. The Zentangle Method, created by Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts, is an easy to learn way of creating images by drawing structured and repetitive patterns. As long as you can hold a pen and draw five elementary strokes, you can do this art form. Traditional Zentangle is done on 3.5" by 3.5" paper tiles and is non-objective with no recognizable shape or orientation.

Smith will be offering a class on Zentangle on Wednesday, September 10 from 5:30 to 7:30 PM. If you are interested in learning this meditative drawing technique, call the DCC at 785-445-9023. The class costs $25 and all materials will be provided.

The Deines Cultural Center is located in Russell at 820 North Main Street and is open Tuesday through Friday 12 to 5 PM and Saturday and Sunday 1 to 5 PM. Admission to the galleries is free.
