Their work will be displayed in the Wolfe Gallery at the school. There will also be an Artist Reception on Wednesday, Feb. 13 from 5 – 7 p.m., with a Jamaican feast included.
Wade Harrison described his style this way: “I am not a lyricist or a musician or a singer…I am an artist in love with these instances of self expression and choose to dialog through my paintings with others who share this love. My paintings are the visual interpretation of my thoughts and feelings without words or sound. I want to entice people to open their minds to my musical heroes not in the mainstream. I want people to be able to hear and feel what I hear and feel and walk away feeling enlightened.”
Kim Thanasiu, a Toledo award winning artist, works with diverse media and surfaces. His work translates personal thoughts and beliefs into vibrant expressions and of color, which have been featured in galleries throughout the Mid-West. Kim has won multiple awards for his art work, with the most recent being, “I Will Not Bite My Sister,” which won 3rd place at the highly acclaimed Toledo Museum of Art and Parkwood Gallery show – Salon des Refuses.
