“Unique & Precious: Our Coast’s Irreplaceable Landscapes” features the newest paintings of Joanne Geisel, who lives in Wilmington, NC. Joanne began a new series of paintings commenting on how unique our particular geographic area is. She illustrates this through local coastal scenes and her paintings of Venus Flytraps. Flytraps are indigenous to only this 150 mile geographic area and marshes that are estuaries to animals and plants.
Joanne’s love of drawing and painting began as a child. After completing a degree in Art Education, she enjoyed careers in human services and higher education. She received a Masters in Public Administration using her creative skills in program development, marketing and helping others with career and educational goals. Since 2006, Joanne has been a full time artist; painting, teaching, exhibiting and selling artwork. Her goals in creating oil paintings include capturing the feelings, sights and sounds of her subject. She continues to experiment with texture, edges, brushstrokes, and palette knife and the layering of color to create depth, luminosity and beauty. Joanne is on the faculty of The Cameron Art Museum School, Wilmington, NC, and the Leland Cultural Arts Center and conducts workshops for many organizations.
Along with this exhibit, our featured photography show is “Seeing Art Through the Camera: Joe P. Wiegmann”. This show features photographs that combine technical and artistic aspects of what he sees through his camera lens.
