Opening Reception: Thursday, November 10, 5-8pm
Art in Bloom Gallery presents two brand new exhibits, opening on November 10th, by 2 very different artists. Fiber artist, Rebecca Yeomans and photographer, Melissa Wilgis both work with found objects in their respective work. Both of these artists reside in Wilmington and Hampstead, N.C. These exhibits will be on view in the gallery from November 10, 2022, until January 8, 2023, at our gallery in Mayfaire Town Center.
“Collaborating with Nature” investigates the intricate fiber art pieces created by Rebecca Yeomans. Rebecca’s current work combines botanical printing, knitting, and stitching with a painterly feel.
“Art Made with Light” is a new collection of cyanotypes by photographer, Melissa Wilgis. Melissa is a fine art photographer specializing in photograms. Her cyanotypes on silver gelatin are a three-step process that requires thoughtful planning and time spent both in a traditional darkroom and outside under the sun. For this body of work, sea whips gathered from local beaches are combined with seashell x-rays and other collected items to create images that are eye-catching and unique.
Join us in the gallery on Thursday, November 10th from 5-8pm for a very special Opening Reception to celebrate the work of these 2 unique artists! Enjoy conversations and refreshments during this event. Gallery events are always free and open to the public. On view along with these exhibits, Art in Bloom Gallery, showcases the work of over local 30 artists.
Established in 2015, the gallery presents an eclectic mix of original, traditional, and contemporary works of art and represents over 30 artists. Art in Bloom Gallery has now moved to our new location in Mayfaire Town Center and is open 7 days a week. Gallery Hours are Monday – Saturday 10am-7pm and Sunday 12-6pm.
