Art Events Featured This Saturday

Design Ten1 Interiors – will feature home-grown Texas artist Denise Kendrick. Kendrick is a graduate of the Art School at the University of North Texas. Her interpretive style in her most recent collection of acrylics and oil on canvas art reflects her Texas roots in a warm, rich pallet. Kendrick is married to her high school sweetheart, Bruce, and is the mother of eight children by birth and adoption.
Garret Art Gallery – will feature artist Ken Toki . Ken was featured in 2010 at the gallery and will be displaying his new work titled, "Texas Water Scenes With Koi Fish." Ken Toki is excited to return to the Garret Art Gallery with his new 2012 acrylic paintings of Texas waterside scenes with koi or carp fish. While a fantasy of composition, Toki has studied both the jewel-like fish and Texas rivers and creeks for many years. While a youth in southern Japan he often swam with koi and learned of their almost human-like characteristics. Compared to samurai for their courage, koi are said to not flinch when on the chopping block. Toki often tours and sketches Texas riverside scenes, which he loves. Toki is a member of Dallas Koi Kichi. Meet the artist and see his new works on Saturday from 7-10 p.m.
Imaging on the Square – will feature various local artists showcasing their many different mixes and mediums throughout the evening.
Laura Moore Fine Art Studios – will feature Williams Renzulli and his most recent series, "Nature Imagined." The 15 medium- to large-scale paintings are more about the feelings derived from a place than the place itself. Renzulli feels drawn to "create beauty, both elegant and mundane" with his thought-provoking works. Meet the artist Saturday from 7-10 p.m. The exhibit will be on display through Nov. 7.
Orisons Fine Art & Framing Gallery – will feature 10 exceptional artists from CityArtCal in a group show. Bold compositions and innovative use of media characterize the works chosen.
