Black and White Show at Maple Grove Arts Center
The Maple Grove Arts Center is putting on a show that’s all about black and white.
“From photography to painting it just gives you a whole different view of art when you see it in black and white. I think you focus on different things,” says Caroline Munro, who is vice president of the Maple Grove Arts Center.
The Black and White Show is just what you might imagine it to be.
“It’s like when you look at a black and white photograph, you look at it really closely,” says Munro. “You see different details and more of the tones and the shades of that picture than when its color and certain things jump out at you.”
There are 15 artists represented and the show is not just photography and painting.
“We have a nice selection mixed media ranging from charcoal, graphite, and acrylics. We have some beading and some oils,” says Munro. “There’s a little bit of everything and also all levels.”
Finally, the Maple Grove Arts Center is starting a new scholarship.
“It’s to support the kids of district 279. It’s the Jacob Beneke scholarship fund and it is for high school students who are top in their art class and they’re going off to study art at college,” says Munro. “So, we’ve just started doing that and we have a Go Fund Me page. So if you go to Maple Grove Arts Center you’ll be able to find more information about it, or you can come into the arts center, see this beautiful art, and maybe donate a bit of money to some of our young artists.”
The Black and White Show runs through June 28th.
