Come see our ongoing exhibition , "Color Crescendo", on the second floor of the Historic City Hall, Arts & Cultural Center at 1001 Ryan Street, Lake Charles, 70601.
The theme for the Gallery by the Lake’s first exhibition at the Historic City Hall is “Color Crescendo”. The exhibition takes its inspiration from the Latin word, crēscere, which means “to come into existence, increase in size or numbers", or “to grow or cultivate something”. Come see how the Gallery’s artists interpret this definition in the context of color in their paintings, photographs, and sculptures.
"Rare Light" exhibition: the Gallery by the Lake featured artist for the first quarter of 2020 is photographer Dan Plummer, whose exhibition, "Rare Light" is on display as part of "Color Crescendo":
When the earth turns its back to the sun, we humans switch to night mode. Where there is manmade light, we congregate with purpose and comfort in mind. Where there is natural light from the moon and stars, we are more likely to stop, stare, contemplate, or even fear. This set of late-day and night landscapes invites the viewers to put themselves into these near-dark scenes as observers and contemplators.
