Stop by the Bainbridge Performing Arts Gallery in May for “Light, Glass, and Crows,” an exhibit of oil on canvas by Kent Holloway.

Holloway’s recent works in oils cover a variety of subject matter; some loose impressionistic works, and some more refined, but all exploring the play of light on a range of surfaces. He’s been particularly interested in the brush strokes, and the impasto or smooth applications needed to create the illusion of different surfaces ranging from flower petals, to glass, and clouds.

Studying the surfaces of his subject matter, he imagines the brush strokes and paint texture he’ll apply to the canvas: “This prepares my vision before I pick up the brush.”

There will be a special artist reception and a fun evening of art, food and friends during the First Fridays Art Walk from 5 to 7 p.m. May 3.
