Special Reception for "An African Winter"

With a public opening on January 28th, the Roosevelt Island Visual Art Association brings An African Winter, artwork by Owen Miracle Maseli to the Octagon Gallery, 888 Main Street.

"I paint from memory and intuition and also work with references, which I use as my guide," says Miseli. "I make my own interpretations from them. 

"I work in oils, pastels and acrylics mainly. I like paintings that express a message without necessarily being over labored. I love colors, gestures and moods. I am not restricted in style. Sometimes I do folk art and other times, contemporary art. I paint as the art chooses to go."

The artist hails from Nigeria and got his formal art training from the University of Benin, Benin City."

An African Winter will be on view at the Octagon Gallery, 888 Main Street, from the 28th, closing on February 26th. Gallery hours and 9:00 a.m until 9:00 p.m. daily.

You are invited to an opening reception on the 28th, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
