Raleigh, NC artist Mary Storms creates unique abstract mixed-media landscapes. Her intent is to provide a sense of the symbiotic relationship between the primeval elements – stone, soil, water and sky – and the life forms these elements nurture. Using a range of color palettes, mixed media canvases are almost always textured with layers of torn or cut handmade paper, recycled magazine paper and acrylic paint, sculpting paste and an occasional found object. To add additional depth and texture, she scrubs some off before the paint and paste has set completely. We hope you’ll join us on March 18 to meet and talk to this interesting artist.
Renowned Wilmington, NC oil painter Ann Parks McCray says nature is her primary source of inspiration. Her warm style is at home in both traditional and contemporary settings.
