PRESS RELEASE
Rocky Mount: "A Journey into my Parallel Universe"
Gayle Blackerby's Art Show:
NC Wesleyan

Opening Thursday, September 28 at NC Wesleyan's Mims Gallery, artist Gayle Blackerby will be taking us on "a journey into her parallel universe in a search for infinity through abstract impressionist painting." Join Gayle at the gallery from 5 pm on to see her colorful work and enjoy the live jazz ambience.

Blackerby is a free painter who comfortably jumps from nature to surrealism to improvisational abstraction. Gelling the breadth of creative painting into the Blackerby Style is color. Her brushwork can be controlled in a gridded architectural abstraction or loose and dynamic in her response to the world of plants and flowers. Her vision is always uniquely Blackerby and whether naturalistic, impressionistic or surrealistic. What she says about her painting process, says a lot about her artistic journey, "I have realized the beginning and ending of my work is never important, just the wild and crazy journey in between."

Free to the public, please join the Wesleyan community 5 pm onward at the Dunn Center's Mims Art Gallery to welcome Gayle and enjoy her large exhibition of over 40 works. Most of her paintings are for sale and will be a great addition to a home or office collection. Her exhibition continues until October 29th.

ARTISTS' STATEMENT
I have few artistic boundaries, conceptual goals, and each piece is inspired. This unpredictable, diverse show is aptly titled "A Journey into my Parallel Universe", which critics have described as "surprising", "uplifting", and "fresh".

I hope you will visit and find a treasured piece that truly speaks to your soul. Prints and cards of select works will be available at the Artists' Reception.

A 20% discount will be applied to all purchases that evening. All those attending will also be entered into a drawing for a museum quality prints of their choice, cards and a few small originals.
