2nd Friday Artist at The Electric Company – Virginia Dickens
- This event has passed.
June 8, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Virginia Dickens, is a photographer, artist, and graphic designer. She creates her art by combining her photographs, paintings and sketches in Photoshop. The mixed media piece is then built up layer-by-layer, adding pieces of her photographs as she goes. Printing her creations on canvas, metal and watercolor paper in her studio, she assembles the frames and hand stretches her work. Some canvas prints receive another round of painting with acrylics and gel mediums. In 2009, it was a Near Death Experience which would open up a strong spiritual relationship with nature, human consciousness and her understanding of death. While weed whacking in the yard, she disturbed a yellow jacket nest and was overcome by bee stings. What the artist experienced that day soon became the underpinning of her latest creations.
Please come by 2nd Friday, June 8th from 5 to 8 PM at The Electric Company Art Gallery, 207 E. Depot St., Bedford and enjoy her work as Featured Artist for the month of July.
