Wow! What a wonderful evening at The Contemporary Art Center. The opening of the Donald Mason exhibit.
Kevin has known Donald Mason for several years and has always admired his talent in taking everyday objects and turning them into beautiful and thoughtful works of art. He is inspiring in his dedication to his art.
Tonight we were able to learn more about the artist and his journey thru life which brought him here with his amazing talent. I can imagine that Donald was an amazing teacher in District 150 and touched many lives with his art and his stories of his life journey.
Donald captures life and emotion in his work. His work is thought provoking and intense. We enjoyed listening to his story and experiences that shaped him into the artist he is today.
Mr. Mason is a resident artist at the Contemporary Art Center and a master of his art. He explained the story behind the artwork. Each piece has its own story that speaks to the viewer. It was interesting to hear of these experiences in his life that served as inspiration to his work.
A big thank you to William Butler, Ricky Traughber and the volunteers at CAC for organizing such a wonderful event. If you didn’t get a chance to see his work tonight, his work will be on display for the next month on the 2nd floor.
