Friday, July 6, 6-8pm - Opening Reception

“Koi by the Lion’s Den” Watercolor, oil and gold leaf on panel, 36″ x 24″

Join us for the new exhibit of watercolors and painting by Deb Klein Ahern. Her art is multi-faceted in its origins and its media, in its subject and its style, constant and current – and ever-evolving. She is a painter working in watercolor, oil, acrylic, print and mixed media.

Deb has enjoyed a life-long passion for art, entering and gaining recognition at several art shows early on. Her 3-year study with Dale Boatman, an accomplished watercolorist, in Sierra Vista, Arizona, in the late 1970s, and her University studies in fine arts and art history in Tuscany, Umbria, and Veneto, Italy and Egypt in the 1980s, helped her immeasurably to “see” vivid color in the world. After 30 years of living in Germany, Deb has recently moved to Amelia Island, Florida and expects the terrain and light will once again change her work. Her works can be found in numerous private collections both in Europe and the United States.

This exhibit will be one view in conjunction with the “Art of the Camera,” a group photography invitational exhibit curated by the Art in Bloom Gallery.  The opening reception will be held on Friday, July 6th from 6-8pm.   Visit with the artists and enjoy refreshments with live music by Myron Harmon.

“Fresh Take: New Work by Elizabeth Darrow”
August 3 - 25, 2018
Friday, August 3, 6-8pm - Opening Reception
Friday, August 25, 6-9pm - Closing Reception & Fourth Friday

“Yackety Yak” Oil pastel and oil on canvas

Join us for a first look at the new work of Wilmington’s own, Elizabeth Darrow.  This exhibit will feature a selection of work fresh out of the artist’s studio.

The opening reception will be held on Friday, August 3rd from 6-8pm.   Visit with the artist and enjoy refreshments with live music.

Elizabeth Darrow has made Wilmington her home since 1977. She works in a variety of styles depending on her medium, but never works “from life” in the traditional sense. Most of the imagery that comes to her seems to hatch of its own accord, emerging from the process. Darrow enjoys working with color, repeating patterns and embedding humor (and angst) into her work. Each piece takes her on a journey of discovery where she hopes to lose herself to the process.

 Stay tuned for more details.
