‘Reflections of Hope’ by Christine Bennett-Weber
The February 2020 Gallery Show at the Pontiac Community Art Center will open in the Joe Bailey Gallery on Saturday, February 1 and will run through Thursday, February 27. The Gallery Show is entitled ‘Reflections of Hope’ and features the work of artist Christine Bennett-Weber.
Christine describes ‘Reflections of Hope’ in her artist statement. "Life and renewal continue to influence the art I create, whether through the subject matter or media. Gently handling emotion and translating that via clay, pastel, watercolor. Quietly honoring both the beauty and comfort we find in our living surroundings through a glazed piece thrown on a potter's wheel, felted painting or creature. As a massage therapist, I felt a calling to provide comfort and healing to patients with serious illness at some of the most vulnerable points in their lives. As an artist, my hands continue to be the tool that allows me to share my reflections, this month focused on hope and peace restored."
