The Thomas Gallery will present Mark Blaney’s “Recent Works” exhibit at its gallery, located at 107 N. College Ave. in downtown Bloomington. The exhibit opens April 6 and will be open every Friday in April from 5 to 8 p.m. or by appointment.
Blaney created the exhibit's work, such as “At The Market” and “Cultivating,” in watercolors and oils.
“Rarely do I get excited as I do with this artist,” gallery owner Thomas Gallagher said in an email. “He is the real deal.”
Blaney works in various mediums, such as painting, sculpture and drawing. In June 2017, the Venue Fine Arts & Gifts, located on 114 S. Grant St., presented a gallery of Belaney’s paintings and drawings. Some of his work is available on artcld.com, with pieces starting at $2,800.
“The movement and interactions among people, plants, animals and weather are reason enough to make symbols,” according to Blaney’s website. “The variations and descriptive qualities of line and color hold my interest and every new painting is a chance at working and playing in form and color.”
