“WANDERLUST”- – the innate desire to roam, travel, wander to explore the world. The Wells Gallery will showcase several gallery artists Friday March 4th, 2011 from 5-8 p.m. expressing their own wanderlust. This show has challenged each artist to express in one image their sense of childlike wonder and possibility in the world.
Owner Hume Killian says, “Having two children under three has increased my own fantasies of travel, revisiting great trips from the past and planning new adventures for the future. Many people are limited to dreams right now for numerous reasons, but the pleasures of fine art will allow them to feed their own worldly wanderlust through the eyes of others.”
The works include photography and paintings that will offer a selection of scenes highlighting Italy, Greece, South America, the Caribbean and closer locales like New York City and California. Gary Gowans explains, “You don’t always have to travel far to satisfy your inner wanderlust. Painting the places where we’ve been allows us to re-LIVE the pleasure of having been there.”
The show will run through March 19th, works will be available online and in the gallery. More Digital images of new paintings are available upon request. Contact Keli Tolley (843) 853.3233
