Tammy Gilchrest: Faces & Places

Saturday, October 19th, 6:00 pm-9:00 pm
Sunday, October 20th, 2:00 pm-4:00 pm

Tammy Gilchrest, new to The Cove, offers an exhibit of portraits in charcoal and meticulously layered landscapes in oils.  Emulating the atmospheric effects of Tonalism, she paints in a lyrical style that incorporates her Old Masters training and her love of color.  

NEW in the Alcove (small room inside Cove): Artists address the human figure. These images are compelling, edgy, in our face. Missy Burton, Don Simmons, Jeni Tomlinson, Kanyi Muraguri, Wendolin Mercado, David Hobson, Kathleen Mekailek, Leo Malboeuf.

The Cove is not the only art gallery in McKinney. Here are more great places to see the work of this burgeoning art community (click image to go directly to their website):

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.”
