The Kirby Cultural Arts Complex has two exhibitions currently underway for the month of January. In the Kirby Gallery, Kate Lagaly is showing a collection of new drawings and paintings in an exhibition entitled Musings. In the Upper Gallery, Jason Beaver is showing a collection of recent photography, including both black and white and color prints.
Lagaly’s work can be seen all over Roxboro, with her new murals just installed in the Alleyway Mural Project on South Main Street. “I absolutely love art! I have been making art since I was young. Art is woven into every part of my life and everything I do; it has been a constant companion and a driving force. I work in a variety of mediums and paint or draw almost every day, teach regularly at various locations, travel some for workshops, enter lots of art exhibitions and competitions and enjoy spending time around other artists. I have earned signature memberships in various art organizations and have art published in several books,” Lagaly said. Her exhibited works are primarily created in colored pencil and watercolor on paper. She focuses on images of people and specimens of plants that she finds in nature.
Beaver lives and works in Roxboro. He is part of the Roxboro Photography Club and takes photographs while traveling and exploring the surrounding area. His photographs reveal a unique, personal connection to the world around him. Focusing on landscape, animals, and the ephemeral phenomena of the natural world, Beaver’s images pay special attention to capturing vibrant color and complex composition.
Both exhibitions run through the month of January, and can be viewed by visiting the Kirby Cultural Arts Complex, 213 N. Main Street, Roxboro during gallery hours: from 1-5 p.m., Tuesday-Friday, and 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.Saturday. All works on exhibit are for sale.
