Detroit painter Richard Lewis’ solo art exhibition is now open. “Works In Progress” officially opened on Friday, August 13th at the Galerie Camille.
The art exhibit will be open until September 11, 2021. It features a collection of family stories and Richard’s favorite movie scenes.
“The show is called ‘Works in Progress’ because I usually consider my paintings ongoing. I never have drastic changes in my work, but a deepening understanding, or simply a different perspective, that comes from having worked on something over time. The subjects are the people I paint and are usually concerned with history, including family history, and politics.”Richard E. Lewis, Detroit Artist
