About the Art
After a visit to my Wilmington studio by Art in Bloom Gallery owner Amy Grant, I was presented with the idea of showing a selection of works on paper at Pin Point Restaurant. Since I had a cache of pieces 22 x 30 inches in my flat files and storage racks, we agreed it would be interesting to have all works a unified size.
Included in this selection are works I created and/or exhibited in Macedonia, Germany, Peru, Vermont, Bald Head Island, and Wilmington. The mixed media in these pieces vary with acrylic and oil paint, graphite, collage, sgraffito, sewing, found objects, birch bark, India ink, sailing charts, and more.
I am also known as a ceramic artist, hand-building vessel sculpture, relief wall tiles, and other three dimensional objects. There are times I find the process of making a clay piece from start to finish laborious; therefore, working in other mediums can be quite a satisfying diversion. ~ Gayle Tustin, Wilmington, NC
