COVER STORY: Spring into First Friday

ART FIRST: WORKS BY JESSICA CANNON

A POP OF COLOR

Art First’s April show will feature Jessica Cannon’s colorful and abstract set of paintings called, “Dimension Variable.” Her works seem to pop out—no plastic blue-and-red movie theater glasses needed.

Cannon’s distinct 3–D effect is brought about by applying paint in a thick manner using different surface textures. She uses oil and acrylic paints, encaustic and mixed media.

“We are very happy to feature one of our new, young artists,” said gallery member Pat Thalman.

Besides Cannon’s paintings, the gallery will display art from all of its current 33 members. Works will include other paintings, photographs, tapestries, sculpture and more.

ART FIRST GALLERY

824 Caroline St. “Dimension Variable,” works by Jessica Cannon, through April 28. First Friday reception tomorrow, 6–9 p.m. 540/371-7107; artfirstgallery.com.
