“Shadows” pen and ink strike-off art by Vanessa K. Stokes.
In a public conversation at the exhibition’s opening the emerging artist revealed…
“At the start of 2020, we all hoped this new year would go right. As we do every New Years Eve, we make resolutions to ourselves and others. Plans which we hope to stick by and goals we wish to achieve. But this year we have been faced with insurmountable difficulties and change. Like many, I had a plan in mind for what I wanted to show during the Lights and Shadows theme for the Fairweather Gallery.
But as one month stretched into many, my journey got skewed. Plan A turned into plan B. Then B into C. But In these times of uncertainty, what’s most important is not a plan, but the people around you who matter most.
The figurative, and literal, Lights and Shadows of our lives.” Vanessa K. Stokes
“The gallery looked absolutely stunning for the LIGHT and SHADOWS show and I couldn’t be more honored to be showing in Fairweather. Thank you so much.” VKS

Attractively lit, Vanessa’s art takes on different looks like the natural light of the day progresses into night.
