Elk Grove, July 1, 2023 – The Elk Grove Fine Arts Center presents BIG Art at EGFAC, and Draw a Rumor by Dwight Head, August 5-24, 2023. The Center will open for a First Saturday Public Reception on August 5 from 4-7PM.

Returning for a second year at the Center, BIG Art at EGFAC fills the walls of the main gallery with oversized landscapes, still life, and figurative paintings. Artists are asked to stretch themselves and their canvases to create work suitable as statement pieces on large walls in homes, offices, and major collections.

In the Foyer Gallery, Dwight Head presents Draw a Rumor, a collection of figurative surreal paintings.

As a surrealist artist and an illustrator, I speak visually using self-reflective images and symbols.  I contemporize these images and symbols which are rooted in my everyday life as an artist.  My final products are varied as I draw and paint that which is deep within as a human being interested in teaching myself and others. – Dwight Head
