Life in Istanbul ~ Village of Millions
Hall Gallery
Sept 1 – Dec 30, 2017

Bringing Turkey’s wonders to the West, Life in Istanbul ~ Village of Millions will showcase the vibrant and colorful paintings of Gabrielle “Gabby” Reeves, a native of Casper, Wyoming.  Reeves moved to Istanbul in 2011 after receiving her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from the University of Wyoming. Working primarily in oil and watercolor, Reeves vividly captures the stratified and surreal nature of life in Istanbul and the life of the city itself.  Reeves’ paintings using multiple media are often representations of an Istanbul fading away due to development and urban sprawl.
