ABSTRACTS AND CLAY WORKS FROM TWO ARTISTS AT PEACHTREE CITY LIBRARY

Peachtree City Library’s Arts Initiative is pleased to announce that the featured artists for March/April are multi-media collage artist Marklyn Wilson and photographer/potter/sculptor Teresa Foshee. The two artists will be celebrated at a reception at 6:00 p.m. on March 17th.  The public is invited to this free event.

Marklyn Wilson recently won Best in Show at the Arts Clayton Gallery’s annual juried exhibition.  She will return to Arts Clayton in July of this year for a one-woman show. Wilson moved to the Atlanta area three years ago, after having established herself as an artist in Hawaii, where she ran a bed & breakfast called Art & Orchids.  Wilson uses a variety of handmade papers incorporating different types of recycled and decorative papers in her works, too. She may strew them with salt, paste paper, and watercolor wash. She also incorporates fused glass, stainless steel pads, and other found objects, both natural and man-made. Fifteen of her works are on display at Peachtree City Library through April.

Teresa Foshee recently exhibited her photography at the library when representing the Newnan-Coweta Art Association as one of the library’s Artists of the Month. Foshee graduated from LaGrange College with a double concentration in Photography and Ceramics & Sculpture in 2016, which fulfilled a longtime dream of finishing a degree started much earlier in life.  The library is displaying Foshee’s works in both abstract photography and clay. Be sure to find her bas relief sculpture in the library’s new area for art display near the fireplace.

 

 

The library has doubled the amount of space available for featured artists to display their work this year.  If you are unable to attend the “after hours” reception on the 17th, all art is viewable during the library’s open hours, seven days a week. Peachtree City Library is located at 201 Willowbend Rd.
