Fran Seikaly: “The Art of Pastels”

July 8 – August 26, 2022
Reception & Artist Talk: Saturday, July 23 at 2–4 pm

Color | Ink Studio & Gallery is pleased to present “The Art of Pastels”, an exhibition of pastel paintings by award-winning artist Fran Seikaly. The works selected for the show include misty landscapes, portraits, botanicals, abstracts and cloudscapes. “I value pastels for their color, ease of use and the softness of the final painting,” says Seikaly. The exhibition opens on July 8 for seven weeks.

The public is invited to attend the Artist Reception on Saturday, July 23 from 2–4 pm. It’s free, and Fran will greet visitors and talk about her work. There is ample parking in the lot and on the side streets. The exhibition is on display through August 26.

Fran Seikaly is a professional artist and art instructor in Southeastern Michigan. She attended the Kendall School of Design and the Center for Creative Studies, holding a B.S. in Art Education and a Masters of Education from Wayne State University. She continues her education through community education classes. “There is always something new to learn,” notes Seikaly. After taking a class in pastels fifteen years ago, she now shares her knowledge and teaches other artists about this expressive medium.
