Metro Gallery ( in Lincoln has announced that they will be featuring artist Kinzee Hillis and her exhibit “New Year New Me” in January.

“My art is whimsical and bold,” said Kinzee. “I use color to bring up emotions. I use abstract designs that reward close looking, giving viewers the opportunity to let their minds wander. It is important to me that people have something to both return to and get lost in.”

Later in the month, watch Hillis create her intricate art during the new “Evening with an Artist” gallery events Wednesdays from 4-6 p.m. on January 11, 18, 25, and February 1.
