New Featured Artist in Noodle Gallery

Noodle featured artist:  Darlene Monroe

November 2nd to November 27th 
Darlene Monroe’s work is textured and moody. Somehow managing to evoke the feeling of darkness and brooding while still maintaining softness and bringing about sparks of brilliant light peaking through.  When gazing upon Darlene’s pieces one is reminded of Leonard Cohen’s well known lyric from his powerful song ‘Anthem’… 
“There is a crack, a crack in everything 
That’s how the light gets in.”
