The Art Of Creativity



            A variety of art forms will be represented in the Main Event Gallery's Exhibit, "The Art Of Creativity," Oct. 1-30.  A reception for the participating artists will be held Friday, Oct. 1, 5:30-8 pm.


            Fiber artist, Natalie Caldwell was taught to embroider by her mother and quilting by her grandmother when she was in first grade and she has spent the last 40 years creating her own quilts. She always had a flair for design and architecture.


            Natalie's quilts range from traditional patterns to animals and scenic subjects.  She looks for things that inspire her. "I tend to choose colors that are vibrant and cheerful, she said. "I love the fact that you can express your uniqueness in your quilts by picking the fabrics, textures and colors. I quilt because it brings joy in my life."


            Artist Carl Avery's airbrush murals can be seen on the walls of numerous local public buildings.  But this only represents a small part of his artistic accomplishments.  "I've always drawn from the time I was a little kid, he said." It was a part of me and just something I did." 


            When Carl was 13 his father bought him an airbrush and that let him explore other media like automotive paints and enamels. He said, "Because of my passion for art, I started my own business while I was still high school, painting buildings, cars and motorcycles."  A Native American, some of Avery's artwork reflects his culture.
