Join us for wine and refreshments as we host an artist reception for Wendy Burgess. About the Artist: She began her career digitizing satellite imagery into maps and was fascinated by the colors, textures and patterns in these images. Recently encouraged by a dear friend to participate in #the100dayproject, she decided to pick up her paint brush and create a painting every day for 100 days and post the images to her Instagram account @wendyvarr_art. From this endeavor, a spark was ignited! Starting with watercolors, then high flow acrylics, she eventually discovered her latest favorite medium, alcohol ink, given to her by her family as a gift. Most of her recent work vacillates between a ocean-like coral reef themes to abstract shapes and forms with many layers of ink and alcohol. These new paintings are meant to be a bit mesmerizing and ethereal and the act of creating them offers a form of meditation as well
