“The Bear” by Allie Kelly
“Ballerina” by Tom Kelly
The uncle and niece artist team of Tom and Allie Kelly will present their work at the West Street Art Center starting this weekend.
The Madison natives' "People and Places" show will open at 6 p.m. Saturday at 301 West St. The show, the Kellys ninth together, will last for three hours.
There will be an after party featuring music by the Chestnuts, Virginia Red and The Kelly Brothers; poetry by Jill Koren and Angela Ellis; and improv by Awkward Silence, which is led by Harlan Kelly and Dan Versweyveld.
Allie Kelly, formerly of Madison, studied art at Western State College in Gunnison, Colo., where she received a bachelor's degree in studio art with an emphasis in printmaking.
Her artwork has been displayed at shows in Indiana, Kentucky, Colorado and Virginia.
Allie Kelly currently lives in Scottsville, Va., where she works as a full-time artist and homesteader and a part-time wine pourer.
"I paint my surroundings and what I see," Allie Kelly said in a statement. "This year I have unlocked a new perspective toward my art, finding inspiration through seasonal changes in nature."
Tom Kelly, who was also born and raised in Madison, now lives in Aurora, Ky. He studied art at Murray State University and Lyme Academy College of Fine Art in Lyme, Conn. He currently attends classes at the Paducah School of Art.
"I enjoy painting people, people who will sit and let me look and paint, translating what I see onto the two dimensional surface," he said in a statement. "At best the paintings communicate something about a person and the times they inhabit."
The show will run until July 13.
