Corcoran residents featured in Art Crawl

Lawrence Nelson and Andrea Sepulveda to Showcase Work Dec. 7-8

The Seward Art Crawl will take place on Saturday, December 7, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, December 8, from noon to 5 p.m. More than 60 artists will be displaying and selling their work at local art studios, galleries, businesses, churches and home-studios, including Corcoran residents Lawrence Nelson and Andrea Sepulveda.

The culmination of eighteen years of mixing mediums, Fly Eye art is Larry’s latest endeavor. They are combinations of observational paintings with photography, and collage. The photos are panoramic views squared. Thirty five photos fit together revealing a total field of vision including the periphery. These mixed media paintings become postindustrial mandalas, meditations on contemporary realities. They are invitations to stop, look, and listen to life as it’s happening.

Andrea Sepulveda enjoys photographing graffiti that is in some way representational and concrete – She sees it in all kinds of places: walls, train cars, sign posts, bridges, mailboxes and even fire hydrants! She also likes to be with nature – bugs and flowers especially.

The Seward Winter Frolic combines the former Seward Art Crawl and the Franklin Frolic celebrating the vibrant artistic, cultural and business communities with support from the Seward Neighborhood Group and the Seward Civic and Commerce Association.

Art crawlers are invited to frolic at participating businesses by taking advantage of specials and giveaways. All venues are within walking distance throughout the Seward Neighborhood.
