Lines, Zentangle featured at Deines exhibition, upcoming class

lines projectRUSSELL — Two new exhibits at the Deines Cultural Center involve lines both simple and complex, according to director Shannon Trevethan.

“Lines Project” by Eric Carbrey is a creation of geometric art that “feels as if the shapes are growing into their current frozen positions, ” Trevethan said.

An opening reception for Carbrey’s show was Sunday, and his work is on display in the north gallery until Sept. 26.

“Zentangle” work by Brenda Smith is in the upstairs gallery.

The Zentangle Method, a meditative drawing technique created by Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts, is an easy-to-learn way of creating beautiful images by drawing structured and repetitive patterns.

“As long as you can hold a pen and draw five elementary strokes, you can do this art form,” Trevethan said.

Traditional Zentangle is done on 3.5-inch square paper tiles and is non-objective with no recognizable shape or orientation.

Smith will offer a Zentangle class Wednesday, September 10 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

If you are interested in learning Zentangle, call the center at (785) 445-9023. The class costs $25 and all materials will be provided.

The Deines Cultural Center is located in Russell at 820 N. Main Street and is open Tuesday through Friday 12 to 5 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 1 to 5 p.m. Admission to the galleries is free.
