WestMain Artist Co-op in Spartanburg, SC, Features Works by Joan Wheatley

WestMain Artist Co-op in Spartanburg, SC, is presenting the exhibit, Welcome to My Little World, featuring works by Joan Wheatley, on view through May 28, 2011. A reception will be held on May 19, from 5-9pm, during the Spartanburg Art Walk.

Wheatley offered the following statement about her work, “As a child I was always interested in drawing and painting and working with snippets of paper. We moved to the Netherlands in 1972 and immediately fell in love with the folk art from the town of Hindeloopen. I was painting full size pieces of furniture in that style. Then it became smaller and smaller. In 1981, I started doing miniature shows (1”=1’, 1/2”=1’ and 1/4”=1’) across the country with teeny furniture and am still at it today.”

Wheatley adds, “I will be showing a different selections of miniatures for instance - photographs, paintings and collages. All that is pretty unusual and most you might never have seen.”

Stop by to view Wheatley’s show and enjoy our three gallery spaces and the new updated gallery store. Meet the artist and while you are there pick up a beautiful piece of art.

For further information check our SC Commercial Gallery listings or call the Co-op at 864/804-6501.
