ArtWalk at Third House: Troid Brett

Another month, another art show! Join us for ArtWalk on Friday, August 25th. We will be featuring the work of local artist, Troid Brett. Stop on in and meet and chat with Troid, browse some books, and have a lovely evening with us. And as always, beverages and food available from our neighbors Downtown Wine and Cheese!

TROID BRETT has always loved the human body in all its forms: the curves, the subtlety, the complexity. Her figure drawings and portraits show this interest. Since she started painting in 2013 she has discovered color, which makes the form take on a new richness.
