Gallery 100 proudly announces its upcoming exhibition, “Duet in Many Colors,” featuring the captivating works of Lindsey Dahl and Nancy McKay. This dynamic duo will grace Gallery 100 with their vivid interpretations of the natural world from May 4 to June 23.

Lindsey Dahl’s art bursts with color and texture, evoking a sense of wonder. Her expressive brushstrokes bring to life the animals and landscapes of rural Michigan, inspired by her profound interactions with wildlife. “Experience with animals, both wild and domestic, has a profound influence on the way I view my subjects. The beautiful yet brutal, hilarious, and heartbreaking ways of nature constantly inspire me”, said Lindsey. She primarily works with acrylic on canvas, infusing her pieces with the beauty and complexity of nature.

In contrast, Nancy McKay’s art delves into the stories and possibilities inspired by protected landscapes. A Master’s graduate in textiles from Eastern, Nancy found her passion in silk painting, drawn to its luminosity and brilliance of color. Her silk paintings, showcased alongside Lindsey’s work, offer a unique perspective on the natural world.

Additionally, on May 19, Lindsey will be present at the gallery reception, accompanied by some of her beloved silkie chickens, adding an extra layer of charm to the event.

Nancy McKay’s extensive experience as an artist-in-residence at various national parks, including Grand Canyon, Acadia, Hot Springs, and Badlands, permeates her work with depth and insight, enriching the narrative of the exhibition.
