Cheraw Arts Commission in Cheraw, SC, Features Works by June Rollins

The Cheraw Arts Commission in Cheraw, SC, will present the exhibit, From The Art, a solo exhibition of art and essays by Wadesboro, NC artist, June Rollins, WSNC, SW, on view in the Burr Gallery, from Mar. 1 - 25, 2011. A reception and an alcohol ink demonstration will be held on Mar. 1, from 5:30-7pm.

Twenty original paintings including, portraits, children, still life, landscapes and flowers in mostly watercolor and alcohol inks will be on exhibit.

Beside most paintings will be the accompanying reference photo and a narrative essay by Rollins sharing insights into the creative process through her observations, discoveries and experiences. “From The Art” narrative essays are sometimes serious, sometimes funny and always from the art.

Rollins loves to capture ordinary moments with her camera, translate them into paintings and write about her creative experiences. Her subjects are varied, dependent on an “intuitive pull,” but her primary medium for the past ten years has been watercolor.

“I believe the creative process is a healing process for the artist. And by healing, I mean a point of entry to increased awareness. My desire is for my art to draw the viewer in, to experience the same. In this exchange, art connects us beyond words,” says Rollins.

Rollins’ artwork can be seen at Art Nutz and The Campbell House in Southern Pines, NC; Mint Hill Arts in Mint Hill, NC; Second Street Gallery in Albemarle, NC; Sunset River Marketplace in Calabash, NC, and in the following locations in Wadesboro, NC: Anson County Arts Council, Fancy Crafts, Lacy’s and Old Mill Galleries.

Rollins is a signature member of the Southern Watercolor Society and the Watercolor Society of North Carolina. She is also a member of Artists League of the Sandhills, Mint Hill Arts, Stanly County Arts, and is a regular contributor to Yadkin Valley Living Magazine, and ArtSync Magazine.

Rollins’ art was published in the October 2010 Watercolor Artist Magazine, Creativity Workshop Column titled Rough Starts, where she explained the process she uses for creating texture. And she was a finalist in The Artist’s Magazine 2010 Annual Competition.
