Next Saturday, September 29th from 6 to 8 P.M. :: Marvin Yates Reception
Join us for the opening reception of watercolor works by North Mississippi artist, Marvin Yates.
Yates graduated from the Memphis College of Art in 1966. His work has been featured in galleries across the country as well as many corporate settings.
Yates has always been intrigued with light and the contrasts that it causes. He tries to capture the depth and color it creates in his paintings. To start with a white surface and work through the process of drawing, composition and painting is a challenging adventure
In contemplating on why he paints, Yates says, “We have glimpses of God’s glory all around us, all the time, everywhere we go, and we so often overlook the Creator. In attempting to capture the fullness of God’s creation, I fall short; but the journey of searching deepens my understanding of what a great God I serve.”
Oxford Treehouse Gallery is proud to have the opportunity to display the work of Marvin Yates.
