The city of Lake Charles will present “Poetry of Color” by Edward Woods at Historic City Hall Arts and Cultural Center. The exhibition will open with an artist’s reception 5:30-8 p.m. Thursday, May 24.
Woods was drawn to art at an early age. In the 4th grade, he attended art classes for gifted children at a college in Michigan, where he was born. Later, his family moved to Iowa, La., where he attended middle and high school. Although he had no further training, he surrounded himself with learning and researching art. After serving in the Navy, he returned home and his interest in art was reignited.
“I love to capture movement, motion, color, depth and atmosphere through the poetry of paint and art media,” Woods said. “The excitement is in seeing the piece evolve as I push forward to create something that didn’t exist before.”
“Poetry of Color” will be exhibited through July 21.
Historic City Hall is open 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday and 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday. Admission is free, but donations are accepted.
