April 8th Art Walk
As part of the Art District's April Art Walk, Artists and fellow Gallery Committee members Kathy Sparks, Chris Collins and Joanne Wilhelm will be featured Friday evening, April 8, 5:30-7:30pm at the Artists' Guild Gallery in the Island Shopping Center at Gulf and Marina in Holmes Beach.
Kathy Sparks is the Island's original "Beach Chic" artist, painting mermaids and other whimsical coastal images in acrylic on canvas. She has also recently self published her first children's book, "Ocean's Tale", for which she created the story as well as the artwork.
Joanne Wilhelm learned crochet from her grandmother and now creates on-of-a-kind necklaces and bracelets, combining the meditative process of crochet with the artistic pleasures of colors, textures and patterns.
Chris Collins had beeb taking pictures for a long time, but found in digital photography the freedom he needed to edit and print his own pictures. He also does his own matting and creates frames that better enhance his work.
