Christmas in Darien returns, and MAA welcomes Santa back to the Old Jail Art Center

DECEMBER 8TH.  Bring your the family!

Christmas in Darien 2019


The Watercolor and Gouache paintings of Betty Oliver

Opening Reception

Friday, December 6th, 5 – 7pm

The Old Jail Art Center

404 North Way in Darien, GA


Betty delights in the transparency of the watercolor pigments, the quick, loose strokes of brushes, and the subtle, accidental surprises that occur to complete the image.  Her treatment of opaque gouache subjects is less realistic and more conceptual, focusing on “The Shape of Things”.
The Exhibit will be on display through the end of January 2020.

 

Visit our Spotlight Artist page for more information about Betty.

Make it a festive evening at two historic locations!  Enjoy Betty’s wine and hors d’oeuvres reception at The Old Jail, 5 pm – 7 pm, then head up to see the Christmas lights at Ashantilly Plantation, 6 pm – 8 pm.
