  2. Painting with Paper - Art Exhibit & Reception with Keila Ploof

    March 2, 2017, 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Town Hall

    Join us on Thursday, March 2, 5-8pm, during Amherst Arts Night Plus, for the opening reception of "Painting with Paper," a new art exhibit at Town Hall with artist Keila Ploof. Artist Statement: Keila has always been drawn to paper, collecting and saving pieces that spoke to her since childhood. It wasn't until recently that her love of painting and paper collided. An avid gardener and an environmentally friendly artist, Keila uses old books and paper that is past its usefulness. She sees beauty in papers of all kinds exploiting the unique qualities that add character to her work. Each piece of paper is torn, cut or otherwise manipulated to form her “brush stroke” that is applied using a paint brush. She states “I use a matte protective medium that seals and protects and a nontoxic glue that when applied in multiple layers offers an incredible protection.” Texture, color, and light come alive and blends with her love of nature, creating a very unique art form.
