Little Rock artist Michelle Gunter Moore will demonstrate her art to the Pine Bluff Art League Sunday, Nov. 3. The league will meet at 2 p.m. in the Donald W. Reynolds Community Services Center, 211 W. Third Ave.
“Moore’s abstract expressionistic work is often labeled contemplative, studious and pensive,” according to a member who watched Moore’s demonstration at an art venue in Little Rock earlier this fall.
Moore says she uses body language of her subjects to develop a story line, according to a news release.
“I am obsessed with vintage photographs of people, often from a long-ago time period,” Moore said. “I do not pretend to know these people, but I read their stories from the way they are reacting to their setting and other people in the photographs.”
The artist says she experiments with canvas and paper, plus clay for her pottery pieces. In all her various pieces of art, she says, her primary goal is to capture emotion.
“Moore is truly an artist for the new age of art,” one observer of Moore’s work said. “She doesn’t just replicate a scene or photograph; she evokes a genuine response to people, places and things so that the viewer is moved by her work.”
The art scene of Pine Bluff is invited to Moore’s demonstration, according to Vickie Coleman, league president.
League members should bring recent pieces of art to go to the bank displays, according to Jennie Holley, display chairwoman.
Members will vote on new officers at this meeting, according to Coleman.
Light refreshments will be served prior to the business meeting.
