dublinDubHub hosting April art show

In April, the Dublin Community Center, 1123 Main St. will feature the works of artists Eva-Lynn (“Evie”) Loy and Daniel Andrews, both of whom reside in Keene.

A public reception is scheduled for Friday, April 12, from 5 to 7 p.m.

A former elementary school teacher, Loy returned to school to become an expressive art therapist. In 1997, she created and implemented a full-time expressive art therapy program at an alternative elementary school in Lynn, Mass. The works displayed in this exhibit were created after retiring, moving to the Monadnock region and exploring her own creative expression and attempts to communicate the scenery of this area. 

Much of her work is created on wood panels, often for a series, using acrylics and/or collage materials. Many of her paintings are personal interpretations and reflections of her inner journey that communicate the spirit of a subject, portraying images and colors not as they actually appear. Earlier works reflect how she viewed a scene or structure from the “outside-in,” while new work has started emerging from the “inside-out.” 

Her paintings have appeared in national and regional juried shows as well as local exhibitions, and are part of private collections. For more on Loy and her art, visit eva-lynnloy.com.

Originally from Baltimore, Andrews pursued anthropology and design studies at Towson University, where he studied with visual anthropologists Mathew Durington and Harjant Gill. The work presented in this show represents his recent interest in abstract expressionism, intuitive art-making and navigating the space between the conscious and subconscious minds.

Andrews draws inspiration from dreams and emotions present in his inner and outer worlds. His art is a personal sense-making process in response to topics of social unrest, distortion, late-stage capitalism, and anthropogenic climate change. His primary medium has been acrylic paint and mixed media on foam core board.
