Art Reception for Matt Hudkins

February 17, 2017 - 5:00pm

For the month of February, the Community Center for the Performing Arts will proudly host Music + Angels” by Matt Hudkins in the Lobby Art Gallery of the WOW Hall.


States the Artist:


“I would like to thank the WOW Hall and Sam Harmon, the house manager, for giving me the opportunity to share my art with the Eugene community.  I love the WOW Hall.  My first show was the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies in 1994.  Our community is enriched because of the artists that come through here.  I am truly grateful.


“I began painting in February of 2016.  This is my second show.


“All of my art is an attempt to connect to my depth (which includes memories) to my current state of being.  I consider myself an integral artist (google Ken Wilber).  I try to balance the multiple aspects of my life, the community and culture with my views of the universe.  But I don’t want to overcomplicate things.


“I love music and was inspired to connect the music I love with my paintings.  Whenever I am feeling lost I like to put on a piece of music.  It helps me connect again so I can move forward.  We are all creators in this creation.  My art is a reminder to myself that in every moment we are participating in a miracle.  None of this had to be and yet here we are.  I called this show ‘Music + Angels’ because, ‘once in a while you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right’.”


            There will be an opening reception on Friday, February 17, from 5:00 to 7:00 pm.  The WOW Hall Lobby Art Gallery is open for viewing during box office hours, noon to 6:00 pm Monday through Friday.  The WOW Hall is located at 291 W. 8th Ave. (the corner of 8th and Lincoln in Eugene) and is open for all ages.   For more information please call 687-2746.
