Contemporary painter and Farmington Hills resident Cindy Carleton will discuss her creative process during an artist talk and reception held Friday, Sept. 6, 6-8 p.m., at Farmington Hills City Hall.
A Michigan native, Carleton extracts items she finds in her backyard to make materials for use in her work, which reflects traditional Japanese and Native American styles. She conveys in her artwork the natural intervals of form and space, sound and pause, and motion and stillness.
A graduate with honors from Wayne State University, Carleton earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a concentration in Advertising Design and Marketing. She has an extensive career in creative direction and brand marketing.
Carleton’s artwork has been shown in the Scarab Club Printmaker Exhibit, the Detroit Gallery Crawl, in the Farmington Hills Public Art Program. She is a member of the Farmington Area Arts Commission, The Farmington Area Arts Council, Detroit Institute of Arts, and Adcraft Club of Detroit.
Carleton’s exhibit, “Oh The Things You’ll See”, will remain on display through October 11 in the City Hall Rotating Exhibits Gallery near the Council Chamber. Hours are Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
