May Show
“Architectural Inspirations"
by Yvonne Rouseau
Yvonne Rousseau presents a show and sale of new work, Architectural Inspirations, at Art
Central Gallery, May 1 through 31. The public is invited to view the exhibit during regular
business hours at 130 Central Ave., and is invited to a reception honoring the artist on Third
Thursday, May 16, from 5 to 8 pm.

Yvonne says, "An artist finds inspiration in many ways. In this series of paintings
architectural themes provide that spark. An architect invests a lot of time and energy
designing a building and I want to honor that vision while making my own painterly
statement."

The architect and artist have in common the same elements of design: line, color, shape,
texture, rhythm and balance. While the architect must pay attention to one building and its
surroundings at a time, Yvonne enjoys having the prerogative to "isolate a building from its
neighbors in order to focus on its form, character and personality.'

There is also the challenge of developing a pleasing arrangement that features multiple
structures interacting with one another and their relationship in space, such as in Charlotte
Skyline. The artist notes, "When developing an architectural composition, the decision about
a building's angle or view is important". Meet the artist and find your own Architectural
Inspirations at Art Central Gallery during May.The Gallery is open Monday-Saturday, 10 am-
5 pm.
