Enjoy The Journey Art Gallery lists upcoming creative events

West Seneca’s Enjoy The Journey Art Gallery, located at 1168 Orchard Park Road, has announced a variety of upcoming creative events.

A members’ exhibit, “Influence of the 20th-Century Masters,” continues to run through Friday, July 28. Guests are invited to view the work of the artists and guess who influenced their careers.

August’s exhibit, “Life’s A Beach,” will be introduced with a free opening reception from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 4. Artwork is still being accepted for this exhibit, and details can be found on the gallery’s website, etjgallery.com.

A “Zentangle Triple Cards” class with artist Kelly Barone will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, July 19. This trifold peekaboo card is designed to catch people’s attention. The focus of the class will be on merging one Zentangle pattern into another. Learn how to cut the cards, transition patterns and complete at least one card. The cost is $35. Bring a beginner kit of pens and pencils to class.

“Concrete Leaves for Your Garden” with Virginia Koeppel will be offered from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, July 26. Each student will need to bring a hosta leaf, or another large garden leaf, to class — the bigger, the better — and will make a concrete leaf to decorate a garden, patio or home.

Guests will need to bring rubber gloves, Saran Wrap, a large wooden board to work on, and a leaf or two no bigger than the board. After drying time, the group will meet again from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 1, to paint and seal the leaf with outdoor acrylic paint and sealant spray. Participants must bring the paint and spray of their choice on the second night. The cost of the class is $35.

A “Bun Basket Class” with Maureen Quale takes place from 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 2. The basket starts with a 6-inch-round solid wood base. A variety of color choices will be available. Start-stop weaving and twining will be used. The finished product rounds out to approximately 7 inches wide and 6 to 7 inches high and is finished with a lashed rim and small leather handles. The cost is $40.

Summer hours at the gallery are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, through Sept. 4.
