July 7, 2017 Community Room on King 106 West King Street 6:00-9:00 pm Event Description: Join us on Friday July 7 for our July First Friday art show entiteld Mepral: Loss & Rebirth featuring the art of Matthew Samuel. Mathew Samuel was born in Kerala, India in 1976. His family moved to Miami when he was 7 years old. It was through the arts programs during his schooling that he found passion and a sense of comfort creating his work. The main inspiration for his artwork has been his Indian heritage and culture. The concept of existing customs and expectations combined with his mental contradictions of acceptance embody the scope of his work. The contrast between Indian and American cultures creates an interesting subject and vantage point in which to produce his mixed media pieces. The most recent body of work focuses on developing various paintings, silkscreen prints, and installations, depicting and idealizing the concept of self. Mathew Samuel is a successful fine artist and designer. He currently runs a design company called San 7 Studios, which focuses on graphic design, web design, video, and multimedia projects. The company has produced numerous projects for clients such as Heineken, AT&T, and Lockheed Martin. He also works full time as an assistant professor at Lebanon Valley College in the department of Digital Communications. Join us for a great evening of great art, food and more.
