Local Artist’s Work Being Featured at Centennial Civic Center
The work of local artist Linda Olmstead is currently being featured at the Centennial Civic Center as part of the city’s Picture Centennial Program, and citizens are invited to come take a peek.
A city press release describes Olmstead and her work:
“Having created art for most of her life, Linda Olmstead has recently become intrigued by how much intuition helps her to convey meaning in her paintings. Real meaning for many people is provided by outer appearance, whether it is a landscape, cityscape, flower, or a figure, but for Linda real meaning is an intuitive interpretation of that subject’s outer appearance or simply an abstract expression using paint and a substrate.
“Linda believes that the color is most important aspect in her pieces, providing an emotional impact, while the composition can give an impression of agitation, calm serenity or something in between. Different types of contrast are often part of her work, showcasing shapes, texture, dominance, balance and unity. She recognizes that what viewers often see may not be what she expressed, but is happy that each viewer’s experience is original, hopefully causing them think and feel, which is what is truly important for her.”
The exhibit is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Artists who live or work, or create art about the city are eligible to be part of the program, and can enter an online submission anytime.
