Old Town Ne­whall Li­brary em­braces growth

The Signal - - Food & Entertainment - By Sig­nal Staff

What are you do­ing to change the world to­day? That’s what artist Skye Am­ber Sweet’s work ex­plores as she aims to make a dif­fer­ence in pub­lic spa­ces, and Santa Clar­i­tans will have the chance to see her art­work start­ing Jan. 22.

“Em­brac­ing Growth” is the artist’s lat­est ex­hibit and is sched­uled to show­case in the Com­mu­nity Room at the Old Town Ne­whall Li­brary, lo­cated at 24500 Main St.

The col­lec­tion soon on dis­play will high­light “the won­ders of life,” ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease by the city of Santa Clarita. Sweet’s paint­ings em­brace nat­u­ral im­agery, in­clud­ing trees with de­tailed leaves, bark, branches and roots.

“I find that paint and stretched can­vas are made for bet­ter com­pany,” said Sweet in a state­ment on the web­site of her com­pany, Sky­poet. “Paint runs through my veins, across my heart and trails to my fin­ger­tips tran­scrib­ing emo­tion from brush to can­vas. I am a ran­dom sphere of log­i­cal bab­ble.”

To her, the can­vases on which she paints are the fer­tile ground from which her projects grow, with an aim on “build­ing bet­ter art com­mu­ni­ties re­lat­ing to change and mak­ing the world a bet­ter place.” Since her start in the in­dus­try in 2012, Sweet has dec­o­rated the neigh­bor­hoods of Sil­ver­lake, Ea­gle Rock and Wal­nut Creek with mu­rals.

For a chance to meet Sweet, en­joy light ap­pe­tiz­ers and live mu­sic, an artist re­cep­tion is set from 6 to 8 p.m. on Wed­nes­day, Feb. 6.

The ex­hibit will be on dis­play un­til June 4. For more in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing the art ex­hibit, con­tact Jeff Bar­ber at jbar­[email protected] For in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing all city art hap­pen­ings, visit San­taClar­i­taArts.com.
