Close friends, wine, and art. What better way to spend a Friday night?
Every month an SC4 instructor is selected to have his or her art displayed in the Spiral Gallery at Studio 1219.
This month, the Spiral Gallery featured artist is SC4 alumni Mike Henry. His show “Conversations with Light,” includes work representing the blue water area.
Henry could be found mingling among reception guests answering questions and engaging in conversation with close friends.
“I love painting light, so the theme that runs throughout the show is light,” said Henry.
According to Henry, this is his first show at Studio 1219, but in 2011 he had three other galleries at SC4. Among those three galleries were a total of 45 paintings.
Henry began his painting endeavor in 2004. While attending high school Henry took 4 consecutive years of art and thoroughly enjoyed it, but did not continue to pursue it in college.
He started a business degree but found that he was unable to sit still in class. This led him to rediscover his love of art and his talent for watercolor painting.
“It’s fantastic. Mike is a friend of mine so we go to all the shows,” said Dave Hastings from Fort Gratiot.
Studio 1219 is located on Military Street and is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Friday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
