Mary Wicks Solo Exhibition (Digital Art & Photography)
Using nature and color as inspiration, Mary renders photographic images into imaginary and/or abstract works of art. All of Mary’s works begin with multiple, and often unrelated photographs or pieces of photos. Those photos can come from anywhere. They might be of the beautiful art in cemeteries or from the contemporary or historical architecture of small towns and cities like Quitman, Thomasville, Atlanta, Charleston, or Dublin. Or maybe they’re taken from a river in Ireland, an empty beach in Florida, or a dense forest in South Carolina. The subjects of those same photographs could be of anything or any object…concrete, sand, a brick wall, insects, wildlife, or long forgotten, decaying remnants of houses once filled with love…or not. Sometimes they’re just from the lush and humble beauty of her backyard in Georgia. Photos are taken and rendered as abstract art by Mary. Each of her finished works is professionally printed in a variety of mediums including canvas or Giclee archival rag paper that will last a lifetime. Mary has trained with world-renowned Sebastian Michaels, Caroline Julia Moore, and Dave Cross, and enjoys a professional/student community of like-minded artists from around the world.
Kathy enjoys painting spiritual pieces, favoring Impressionism that borders on a little bit of surrealism. Her primary medium is acrylics on canvas and board. She also paints murals, does hand-building in ceramics, and commissions. Over the years, she has earned multiple awards in juried art exhibitions and has been invited to the governor’s mansion to show an exhibit. She feels blessed being able to do what she does and loves it.
This exhibition provides artists working in all mediums with the opportunity to participate in this annual regional exhibition. Selections for awards will be based on a juried review, which is conducted without the knowledge of the artists’ identity, title, or price of work.
