Genesis...and other works that embrace Life

Friday and Saturday, Nov. 17-18, 5pm-9pm
Artist Talk both evenings at 7pm
Darby draws inspiration from the expanse of the universe to the fragile creatures around her rural home to create elegant compositions that carry a message of hope, of relationship, of life.
“Genesis is the beginning. There are moments when we have vision, hope, dreams higher than we believe possible. And yet, what are the possibilities? What does our hope for the future spring from? A new beginning, beginning to grow, the dawn of newness, fresh, uncluttered, uninhibited. Rest in the Presence, the hope of a future is yours. Genesis is the future.” –Darby

Closed Thanksgiving Weekend

Through Our Looking Glass: Photography by AimeeLouise and Beth Beck

Friday, December 1, 6pm – 9pm
Saturday, December 2, 4pm – 9pm
Whimsical digital photographs by sisters AimeeLouise and Beth Beck invite the viewer into their “Wonderland.” AimeeLouise challenges definitions of “reality” by manipulating the captured image. Beth experiments with moody black and white high contrast pinhole images and iconic digital Hipstamatic iPhone shapshots.

Beth recently moved to McKinney from the Washington D.C. area. AimeeLouise owns a portrait studio in the McKinney historic district.

Come ready to shop for Christmas – pieces of all sizes will be available for stocking stuffers or huge surprises on Christmas morning!

About The Cove

402 N. Tennessee St.
The Cove is a private cooperative venue that encourages creatives to congregate, communicate, collaborate, exhibit, and perform.  It is located at 402 N. Tennessee St., in the heart of a growing hub for artists in downtown McKinney.  A new solo or collaborative exhibit opens every weekend, encouraging a constant flow of new work, new ideas, and energy.  Memberships and exhibit/meeting space fees are affordable.  Poets, writers, musicians, artists and small creative groups should inquire about the use of The Cove.

Our beautiful logo was designed by Weeda Hamdan. She began her design using sumi ink and brush. Here is her philosophy behind the design: “The meaning of the logo stands for the infinite circle of community that supports each other (C and O), the V represents a tick/check mark/selection/achievement, the E represents a flag or a banner on a mast. The logo is a freehand of a couple of strokes to express a moment when the mind is free, the body creates. I was inspired by Fibonacci spiral using the Golden Ratio proportions and Enso, which is Mutual Circle or Circle of Togetherness.”
