Opening Night at Henry's April Show, "I Still Myth You"
The night was warm on April 2, perfect for a reception to celebrate Henry's first gallery opening in Pioneer Square. Throngs of art devotees, Henry's friends, and the simply curious flowed through the narrow, high-ceilinged space at Artifact Gallery. Henry and his acrylic paintings on canvas held court. As the show's name implies, Henry's paintings featured mythical creatures and deities, including Poseidon, Pan and Ganesh. One of his works, Pray for Us Sinners, a powerful multicultural meditation on loss, made its debut in October at a Seattle Art Museum event.
