New Oils by Kathy Daywalt and New Bronzes by Michiel Van der Sommen @ Gallery C
Exhibition Dates: May 3-Jul 31

Gallery C is pleased to present beautiful new oils by Kathy Daywalt. Her work focuses on the human body and movement through space and her color palette is deep and rich. Somewhat in contrast to Daywalt's work, Michiel Van der Sommen's bronzes seem to freeze the human body in beautiful and provocative poses. A two person show is a rarity at Gallery C but we feel the juxtaposition of these pieces will compliment each other beautifully.
