3/3  Bryan Haynes' For Your Eyes Only - Works in Pursuit of an Illusive Masterpiece   (Friday:  6:00 pm - 9:00 pm)
OA Gallery is excited to announce an extraordinary and exclusive exhibition of over 100 original works on paper and canvas by Missouri artist Bryan Haynes. For My Eyes Only - Works in Pursuit of an Illusive Masterpiece showcases the preliminary acrylic sketches and studies Bryan used to develop his early concepts into the final artworks familiar to and loved by collectors. Never meant to be seen by anyone but the artist, these paintings reveal the thought process of an artist pursuing an original idea. This unique event will be the first time these works have ever been placed on display or offered up for acquisition to the public.
