Artist Demo by Atti Wheeler!
Saturday, March 5, at the Village Gallery at 11 a.m. there will be an artist demo by our very own, Atti Wheeler.
Atti studied art at Accademia di belle Arti in Rome, earning a B.F.A. in painting and design. As a student she traveled extensively throughout France, Germany, Turkey, and Denmark constantly delving into art classes that reflected her experiences.
While visiting Emerald Island, N.C. for summer vacation 5 years ago Atti developed her new style. It was a moment of feeling the earth and cold water beneath her feet. She started to incorporate colorful shells, sand, soil, etc. into her artwork with oil, acrylic…
Mother Nature became her medium and she transforms these gems into sculptural wall hangings.
On our Demo Atti will share with us her new-found love of mixed media stems from her innate love of texture and her ability to create movement with different materials.
All artist demos are free and open to the public.
