October 14th (1-8pm) – Kelly Gowan Art Exhibition at Tyler Innovation Pipeline – If you enjoy art, food, and drinks, then you should come to Kelly Gowan’s exhibit at Tyler Innovation Pipeline, 217 E. Oakwood St., Downtown Tyler. Drinks are being donated by True Vine Brewery, and there will be some local food trucks as well. Gowan’s styles are unique with jaw dropping large pieces of abstract resins, that look like oceans or marble geode rocks. She slips into her painting zone where she mixes resin with various mediums and inks, while utilizing a blow torch and heat gun to achieve the end results.
