High Street Gallery exhibition at Victory House, Beaumont, Feb 2nd

Artwork by Ryan Gist

The High Street Gallery will host an exhibition of paintings by Ryan Gist from 7-10 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 2, inside the Victoria House at 2110 Victoria St. in Beaumont. Works on display will include ink and marker portraits, large paintings on panels, and a few wall sculptures, which the artist describes as “a fun swirl of contemporary abstract expressionist folk art.”

“Ryan has largely been known as one of the area’s most beloved musicians, so I’m very excited that we get to show the visual side of his artwork during this exhibition,” said Olivia Busceme, gallery director.

The title of the exhibition is “Portraits of the Mighty Lion” because the portraits were inspired by the lyrics of songs on Gist’s 2005 musical album The Mighty Lion.

Entry is free, and the work will be for sale. Refreshments will be available at the event.
