“Unique & Precious: Our Coast’s Irreplaceable Landscapes by Joanne Geisel”

“Warm Winter Day” Oil on canvas 8″ x 10″

“Unique & Precious: Our Coast’s Irreplaceable Landscapes” features the newest paintings of Joanne Geisel, who lives in Wilmington, NC. Joanne began a new series of paintings commenting on how unique our particular geographic area is.  She illustrates this through local coastal scenes and her paintings of Venus Flytraps.  Flytraps are indigenous to only this 150 mile geographic area and marshes that are estuaries to animals and plants.

Joanne’s love of drawing and painting began as a child. After completing a degree in Art Education, she enjoyed careers in human services and higher education. She received a Masters in Public Administration using her creative skills in program development, marketing and helping others with career and educational goals. Since 2006, Joanne has been a full time artist; painting, teaching, exhibiting and selling  artwork. Her goals in creating oil paintings include capturing the feelings, sights and sounds of her subject. She continues to experiment with texture, edges, brushstrokes, and palette knife and the layering of color to create depth, luminosity and beauty. Joanne is on the faculty of The Cameron Art Museum School, Wilmington, NC, and the Leland Cultural Arts Center and conducts workshops for many organizations.

Along with this exhibit, our featured photography show is “Seeing Art Through the Camera: Joe P. Wiegmann”.  This show features photographs that combine technical and artistic aspects of what he sees through his camera lens.

Join us in the gallery on Friday, January 28th from 6-9pm, in downtown Wilmington, as part of the Fourth Friday Gallery Night hosted by the Arts Council of Wilmington for the 2022 Season.  Visit with the artists and purchase original art!  Fourth Fridays Gallery Nights are an after-hours celebration of art and culture.

“Seeing Art Through the Camera: (Joe) P. Wiegmann”

“Restaurant Ready”

“Seeing Art Through the Camera” is our newest show featuring the photographic work of (Joe) P. WiegmannYears ago, a professional photographer gave me great advice, “Always carry your camera with you.” Over the years, I have cultivated my own philosophy to taking photographs and my advice is, “Vary your camera angle and the height at which you shoot your images.” The theme of my January 2022 Photo Show is, “Seeing Art Through The Camera”. I usually see the art of the image before I actually grab for my camera. Then I think about how to take the photo technically. I try various angles or staging heights to take the photograph. I hope that the image captured represents what I envisioned. Once the image is printed, I look forward to a printed piece that displays an additional richness of artistry. Not all photographs work perfectly but when they do, it is such a great high!

As far back as I can remember, I was always engaged in creative endeavors such as drawing and painting. Two years of Civil Engineering at the University of Maryland did not provide me with the means to express my creativity. When I changed my major to Fine Arts, it didn’t make my parents happy but they were supportive of my new goals. After 43 years in the graphic design field and serving as a Creative Director, I retired and moved to the Wilmington area. The beauty and natural energy of the places and artists here have rekindled my creative energy.

Along with this exhibit is “Unique & Precious: Our Coast’s Irreplaceable Landscapes” featuring the newest paintings of Joanne Geisel, who lives in Wilmington, NC. Joanne began a new series of paintings commenting on how unique our particular geographic area is.  She illustrates this through local coastal scenes and her paintings of Venus Flytraps.
