Impressions and Expressions : by artist Minda Searcy

Through Friday, March 29
Mint Hill Town Hall
Presented by Mint Hill Arts Center

The upcoming exhibit at the Mint Hill Town Hall Gallery features the art of Minda Searcy and is titled, “Impressions and Expressions.”  Minda grew up in the Charlotte/Mint Hill area, earned a master’s degree in teaching at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and taught English as a Second Language in local schools for 26 years.  As she neared the end of her career she was inspired by a blank wall in her grown daughter’s first home.  She says that, on a whim, she picked up a paintbrush for the first time in her life and “happily painted abstractly long into the night.”  She found that her new career, which has exploded since that night, allows her to express “her deep love of the natural world with all its colors and forms.”  She adds that inspiration comes in a fairly random fashion and that although she works primarily in acrylic, she sometimes incorporates other mediums such as oil, pastels, ink, charcoal, and crayon.  She credits the success of her second career to her family and fellow members of Mint Hill Arts, especially Carlos Cotera with whom she has studied.

Searcy’s amazing combination of inspiration and technique is captured in the show that will open January 10 and run through mid-April.  The public may view it weekdays between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.  The Mint Hill Town Hall is at 4430 Mint Hill Village Lane. The gallery, which is located on both the first and ground floors, is accessed from the front of the building.
