Second Saturday Night of Art
featuring
Kenly DillardNicole Wilson and Earl Horton

Curated by Liz Marotti
Music by Lu Lake

Nicole Wilson a master of arts, writer, actress, and a Painter! Her painting speak Volumes about women.. Her work reminds me of an artist who went and got a whole bunch of training, and then said you know what, I am gonna paint what the little girl inside of me wants! Her work will tell you secrets if you look long enough! She is an inspiration to me, and i am sure after you see her work for your self you will be just as inspired by her as I am    

Kenly Dillard is a human xerox machine with style. His ability with his pencil is a strength that is unmatched by any cartoonist or artist in NYC. He could capture not only your likeness but a small piece of you on a paper... His movement in his work will take you on a Journey... Are you ready? 

Earl Horton is another one of my Favorite living Artists. He is a photo realistic surreal expressionist. His work will take you into the strange world of his dreams. Sometimes things look so real you could touch them... But then you realize it was all a dream. Earl is an artist, that I personally look up too.. And I know you will see why when you are standing in front of his work!
