North Carolina Wesleyan College in Rocky Mount, NC, Features Works by Joey Savage

North Carolina Wesleyan College in Rocky Mount, NC, will present the exhibit, Straight from the Heart, featuring works by Nashville, NC, artist Joey Savage, on view in the Mims Art Gallery, at the Dunn Center, from June 3 through Aug. 9, 2011. A reception will be held on June 3, from 7-9pm.

The North Carolina beach, countryside and mountains inspire the artist with subjects to paint in his personal brand of realism. Savage’s palette of colors is vivid whether he’s using pastels or acrylic paints. There is a universal sentimentality in his paintings of people and animals; a little girl at the beach speaks to fond memories shared by many parents and children.

Savage has studied art, advertising and graphic design at East Carolina University; he has freelanced as a graphic designer, commissioned painter, and taught in the public schools. His professional art studio is in the Bel Air Artisans Center on North Church Street in downtown Rocky Mount. Many of his pictures are found in private collections across the state and country.
