Legendary tennis player Zina Garrison has joined forces with local artist Kelly Gale Amen and The Stetzel & Associates Showroom to celebrate the arts, academics and athletics at an open house. Artwork and functional art furniture will be on display and for sale.
The work displayed represents a collaboration between locally renowned artists who have created mixed media works over canvases painted by children during Zina Garrison Academy’s “Paint Day.” The Paint Day canvases have also been incorporated into Kelly Gale Amen’s functional art furniture, as well as artwork by artists Sergio Santos, J. Antonio Farfan and Debbie Porter.
Every year, the Zina Garrison Academy hosts Paint Day, an event in which children dunk tennis balls in buckets of paint and then hurl the coated spheroids at huge 8-by-14-feet canvases, creating vibrant abstract art in the process.
