“Local Color,” the June exhibition at Twisted Fish Gallery, features the works of Margaret White, Margie Guyot and William White.
The trio, all from Antrim County, are showing their recent works. The exhibit continues through June 26. There is no admission charge.
Margaret White, of Kewadin, prefers oil pastels as her medium, using the techniques of incising and shaving with a knife to attain details and textures. Her subjects include the human figure and face, flowers, birds, insects, vegetables and jewelry. Her whimsical depictions of feminine images are widely appreciated.
Margie Guyot, of Eastport, paints with oils and finds inspiration in vibrant flowering fields or ripened fruit on a colorful kitchen tablecloth. She’s known for her strong use of color and has exhibited across the country. She’s also a saxophonist and used to tour with a road band.
William White, Margaret’s husband, also prefers painting with oils. His artistic instincts are wide ranging, focusing on old world interiors, classical views of northern Michigan and abstract works in vivid colors. His brushwork and color choices distinguish his paintings, where he uses simple subjects to create complex scenes with intricate details.
Twisted Fish Gallery champions independent artists from around the Great Lakes region. We also have an online store, Fine Art Mart, for people who can’t visit our gallery near Elk Rapids.
