“Taste & SEE”

Cydney Parkes

July 19th 5-7pm

Valet. Wine. Hors d’oeuvres

Cydney gets her name from her young habits as a little girl of always correcting people on how to spell her name: “Cydney with a C”. It started to become her one-liner when introducing herself. So here she is again introducing herself to the world, but in a different way. Cydney with a SEE is not only introducing herself, who she is and what she believes in, she is introducing her vision for art.

Cydney was born in Canada, but raised in Chattanooga, TN where she now calls home. Studying advertising design at SCAD she fell in love with concept and storytelling. She loves being able to express a big idea through the smallest details, color theory, texture, and symbolism. Visually inspiring people is one of Cydney’s best attributes. When she is passionate about something, she dives in head first and wants to be emerged in it, studying every detail to really know what makes humans drawn to it. Now she is taking on the art world. Called to create, Cydney wants to share her vision and passion with you. She hopes to inspire others to truly SEE themselves for who they truly are. As she says…

“When you allow yourself to be SEEn, you allow freedom for others to SEE them selves. Your truest self, your vulnerability, your mess and your progress. SEEing is the blueprint of art. SEEing opens our eyes, heart, soul and mind to let go, to be curious and to SEE beauty in all things.”

Carylon Killebrew

September 7, 2017

Join us September 7th from 6-8 PM for a solo
exhibition of the work of Carylon Killebrew.

In 1948 Carylon Killebrew was born in Detroit Michigan. From there she moved to Nashville, Tennessee with her family. She received her artistic instruction from Middle State University and University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. She also studied at the Vermont Studio Center and the Glen Workshop in Santa Fe, NM. After college Killebrew left the art community for a time to raise a family and also to raise awareness of the need for physical fitness programs for Chattanooga. For her efforts in the latter she received the Governor’s award for physical fitness. When Killebrew got back into the art scene it was primarily as a printmaker, employing repeated patterns as her theme. She managed to produce a great number of artistic variations through light field applications of ink. Often she accentuated parts of the print by using oil sticks. Due to the obvious size limitation in the field of printmaking, Killebrew turned to the canvas where she could produce images with more daring. Like many colorists her works include figurative studies as well as interior landscapes. Killebrew has a strong desire to make art that is honest: pure, simple, an unadorned expression of her spiritual belief that God created a beautiful existence. She wants to glorify his goodness through an art that is bold, unyielding, physical, and ultimately fulfilling.

George Dawnay

December 1, 2016

Join us December 1st from 6-8 PM for a solo
exhibition of the work of George Dawnay.

George Dawnay (born 18 June 1970) is an Enligh figurative painter. Themes and style in Dawnay’s work reference anecdote and narrative. Primary influences by high renaissance “mannerists” Pontormo, Bronzino and Rosso Fiorentino help place his work in direct conflict with the abstraction and conceptual art considered acceptable in much of his native London. Dawnay’s commissioned work includes such names as John Paul Getty of London, the Princess of Corsini (Italy), and the Duke of Gloucester (U.K.). George spent four years at the Florence Academy of Art, the last of those years he worked in and around Florence renovating frescoes. Dawnay has apprenticed with Odp Nerdum, Alexander Hamilton, Charles Weed, and local artist Cesna Decosimo. Dawnay currently works at his studio in Chattanooga, TN, as well as mural and portrait painting.
