Artist Statement

“I translate what I see in my daily life onto canvas. I am inspired by various colours that we see in our food, richness and texture of them. Giving a form of art to these visuals is my genre of food realism. Being an Indian, we have extensive varieties of these colours in our food and it’s my one of the first artwork in this genre.”

Member Show: Fiction, The Art Show

March 25 – May 17, 2019 • Opening Reception March 31, 4 – 6 pm

Artist Spotlight: Meta Dunkley Arnold | 1st Place Prize Winner

Meta Dunkly Arnold,
“Adeline at the Window”

Meta Dunkly Arnold makes found-object assemblages, and also teaches art to young children at Painted Oak Nature School and Art Sparks in Hopewell. Her background in English literature lends a narrative quality to many of her pieces, and her work as an educator inspires her to try to capture the excitement of discovering new things.

Artist Statement

“Many of my assemblage pieces are kinetic and interactive, inviting the audience to share my creative process by going on a “treasure hunt” of their own. This piece, ‘Adeline at the Window,’ portrays my favorite scene in Ann Radcliffe’s early gothic novel, The Romance of the Forest. Far from being a helpless maiden, Adeline rescues herself and saves all the characters. Here she escapes the scheming Marquis by climbing out a window. Opening a book opens a window for the reader, a process Radcliffe’s characters enact by deciphering older, hidden texts for clues to their own stories. Like art (especially assemblage), Gothic novels celebrate the process of discovery.”

My son loved it there! It was the perfect experience for him to grow artistically. Every day he looked forward to creating and learning. I am grateful for the experience the scholarship provided.
