“Rain Date Reception” on Sunday, December 4th, 3-5pm
Art in Bloom Gallery presents two brand new exhibits by two 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. Join us in the gallery on Sunday, December 4th from 3-5pm for a very special “Rain Date Reception” to celebrate the work of these two unique artists! Enjoy conversations and refreshments during this event. These exhibits will be on view in the gallery 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.
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.
