Kimberly Boulon Fine Art Gallery Visual and Performing Art Event
Come join us on Friday, March 15th on the second floor of the Marketplace, Cruz Bay for an evening of the arts at Kimberly Boulon's gallery. We wil have music, appetizers and wine. A painting by Kimberly ("Eternal Beauty: Windswept Beach to Francis Bay, St. John", value $2035) and a photo, printed on aluminum, of a Green Turtle and Silversides by Caroline Rogers will be raffled ($10/ticket or 6 for $50) with 100% of the proceeds to benefit the St. John School of the Arts. Students from the School will perform original choreography by Kim Wild. The show's theme for 2019 is: "SURVIVING WITH SANITY: Shifting FOCUS from SUBJECTS to SHAPES to SERENITY" Two category 5 hurricanes in 2017 wrought havoc to our precious island, St. John, US Virgin Islands. My SUBJECTS had necessarily changed, in either substance and/or spirit, subjects that I painted or related to in one way or another. I observed instead fractured aggregates that took on identities and forces of their own - their SHAPES of color, texture, value and personality, over time recomposing and reforming into different, perhaps unique, entities. Evident in landscapes, seascapes, structures, “things”, people, relationships and communities, the transitions moved/move at various speeds, from explosive to crawling, and perhaps still dragging. The practical act of creativity involved in this re-envisioning of bits and pieces, of our essence, is transformative. As unimaginable as it may be, from the insanity of “Irmaria” may emerge...SERENITY.
