Wickwire Gallery in Hendersonville, NC, Features Works by Cynthia L. Wilson

Wickwire fine art/folk art Gallery in Hendersonville, NC, will featuring acrylic paintings by Cynthia L. Wilson, NEWS, PWS, through June, 30, 2002.

Wilson is a signature member of the New England Watercolor Society, Pennsylvania Watercolor Society, American Artists Professional League and others. Her work has been featured in Artists Magazine and books on painting. Wilson has been listed in "Who's Who in American Art" for 10 years and her work is in collections of the Housatonic Museum of Art, Fairfield University, Georgia Tech, and well-known corporations headquartered in the northeast. She was awarded a Regional Artists, Project Grant and, in the spring of 2001 was awarded by the National Society of Painters in Casein and Acrylic at an annual juried exhibition in New York City. Wilson has taught "Acrylics with Attitude" through Cedar Mountain workshops and in Mar., 2002, instructed "Advanced Acrylic" through Wickwire Gallery's Winter Arts Exploration Workshop series.

Wilson is a full-time painter. She earned a BFA in Graphic Design from Auburn University and spent years as a graphic designer. Today her work reflects her experience as an artist - her observations and emotions. Her artwork is filled with color and light. The actual process of painting for her is tied more to personal viewpoint and inner vision than to technique. Wilson believes you must strengthen the "bones" of a painting for the surface and color to grow. Once she has an idea and begins to paint, the work takes on a life of its own. In her group of paintings about water she tells a story of her feelings about nature and the emotional tie she feels for the mountains of Western NC. One can almost hear the crashing of waterfalls or feel the cool shade her work portrays. "Time passes," reflects Wilson, "and seasons change as effortlessly as reflections on the surface of the water."
