Forest Hills Fine Arts Center Presents: Douglas Baker

Douglas Baker:  Oil Painting
September 1 – 27, 2010
Reception: Thursday, September 9, 2010, 6 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. in the lobby. Everyone is welcome!

Like little journeys between past and present, Douglas Baker’s abstract paintings remind us that where we’ve been is part of where we’re going. “There’s a form of expression within each person that comes out no matter who you are and what you’re doing,” he explains. “What feels like a brand new thought is really an evolution––a building process based on what has already come before.”
