Kirah Van Sickle “Floral Study: Yellow”

Dine at Platypus & Gnome Restaurant to view an enticing new exhibit of Kirah Van Sickle, as part of our partnership with CHECKER CAB productions and local restaurants.

Wilmington artist, Kirah Van Sickle, is an adventurer at heart. Her early years set a foundation for travel, exploration and visual storytelling. Her acrylic and mixed media works explore incorporating found objects and papers with the paint glazes. These are deeply personal expressions of her memories and dreams. In addition to her studio practice, Kirah is a dynamic instructor and lecturer, leading custom studio courses through museum schools and local art associations, directed to both beginner and seasoned artists. She is an award-winning illustrator, graphic designer and studio artist, a certified Golden Artist-Educator, and active in community arts programming, preservation of cultural resources and enhancing arts education. Kirah lives on the Cape Fear Coast of North Carolina and is a staff instructor at the Cameron Art Museum, Johnston Community College, and Cape Fear Community College.

Join us for a special champagne toast and special reception for the artist on Thursday, November 14th from 6-8pm.  The reception is free and open to the public with complimentary champagne and appetizers. If you would like to stay for dinner, please call 910-769-9300 for dinner reservations.
