Our talented mixed media and etching artistMarsha Heatwole will be the featured member in January at C-ville Arts. She will be at the gallery to meet you and share her work during the First Friday Event, January 6th, 2017 from 6 to 8 p.m.
Marsha Heatwole is an established artist living in rural Virginia. Her travels to Africa afforded her the vast opportunity to experience the power of seeing. Marsha’s vision paired with her imagination form a whimsical representation in this collection. There’s a mature gratitude for the creatures and their inspirational magic that sparkles throughout her show.
“Animals seem to me to portray a joy of aliveness and a path to our hearts.” Heatwole explains, “I strive to bring that wonder and playfulness into my art by studying the animal’s anatomy and characteristics, and then revealing that understanding through composition, gesture, and expressive color. This enables the personalities of my creatures to radiate their own special beauty.”
