Old Town Newhall Library embraces growth
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.
