My Giving Tree Gift Shop & Gallery proudly presents "A Cup of Art" featuring a different Texas artist every month. April's show will feature artist Christine Brisley who is an internationally known artist who has been exhibiting her art since the age of 15 and was of the first European to be invited to attend the Nan Yang Academy if Fine Art in Singapore. This early exposure to Oriental culture can still be seen in her watercolors today. Since then she has had over 30 one-woman exhibitions in England, America, Cyprus, Singapore and the Channel Islands and has shown her art in numerous galleries including the famous Grosvenor Park Gallery in Mayfair, London and the Spencer Coleman Galleries throughout England. She has also owned and operated four of her own galleries in Lincolnshire and Essex. Christine’s art is very eclectic in style as she enjoys working with oils, acrylics, watercolors and pastels and paints fine art and modern art with equal exuberance. This diversity of contrasting styles caused one art critic from Seattle magazine to exclaim at her Bellingham, Washington exhibition, “One artist painted all of this!”
Our gallery carries her art year round and we are honored to host A Cup of Art for her. My Giving Tree has pledged to make a donation from a portion of the artists sales to help Bell Fine Arts artist association make repairs to their building. Come meet the artist, enjoy music and a delicious cup of tea or coffee with us at Arusha's Coffee. Save the date and join us in support of our local artists and businesses!
