Mid-Michigan Artist To Exhibit At The Flint Institute Of Arts

August 17th, 2010

Mid-Michigan Artist To Exhibit At The Flint Institute Of Arts

Mid-Michigan Artist Tonya Henderson Rollyson is scheduled to exhibit at the Flint Institute of Arts, Sales & Rental Gallery as the Artist of the Month during September & October of 2010. Tonya is an acrylic painter who dabbles occasionally with mixed media. Her work ranges from contemporary realism to the abstract. She works mainly on gallery wrapped canvases because she says that framing her work feels like it is containing or restricting the energy of the painting.
Tonya has exhibited her work nationally over the course of 24 years. This exhibit will include pieces from previous periods along with brand new work that will be exhibited for the very first time during the exhibition.
The opening reception will be held on Sunday September 12th from 1:00-3:00pm. It is a free exhibit and open to public during normal gallery hours. You can get a feel for the type of work you might expect to see from Tonya by viewing her online portfolio at: www.tonyahendersonrollyson.com
