Arlon Gilliland will teach a class on paper tube mask-making Jan. 28 at the Newport Visual Arts Center.

A new exhibit, “Celebrating Artistic Diversity,” featuring the eclectic work of Arlon Gilliland, debuts at the Newport Visual Arts Center this Saturday, Jan. 7, and runs through Feb. 25.

The multidisciplinary exhibit is a celebration of Gilliland’s creative diversity and inventive style, inviting viewers on a journey through his variety and ease of play in mark and mask-making. Gilliland does it all: acrylic, watercolor, drawings, realistic, abstract, collage, ceramic masks, and even masks crafted from paper rolls.
