February has arrived and everyone knows its heart time. The symbol can eventually annoy some, remind others, cost a pretty penny or inspire works of art. At Kennedy Gallery's new location at 1931 L St., which is actually only mere yards from its former well recognized location on 20th St., the featured art exhibit for the month of February is "Captured Hearts." The group exhibit includes original paintings by Michael Misha Kennedy, metal sculpture by Kristin Hoard, photo-digital works and other paintings that all speak to the heart theme.
Kennedy Gallery welcomes submissions to various group exhibits throughout the year. These group shows serve to keep the artwork fresh with new contributors and themes in compliment to the resident artists who hold key spaces in the old Victorian house turned gallery. The house could be defined as quaint but the Kennedy Gallery sense of culture defies such a confining description and the gallery continues to be one of midtown Sacramento's central art centers.
While the move was not initially entirely embraced by all involved with exuberance in all aspects, the rooms that create sections of gallery exhibits serve to encourage visitors to roam the interior from floor to floor in pursuit of art and artists. Each corner turned reveals a new image and a new creative spirit and makes exploring the gallery relaxing while also stimulating. During the month of February 2013, the entrance will draw people into the "Captured Hearts" exhibit and then on into various realms of magic whether photography, painting, sculpture, ceramics and more.
