The Stokes County Arts Council welcomes Eileen Wilhem to thee Apple Gallery, 500 Main Street, Danbury, for a June exhibition.
Eileen Wilhem, artist and founder of Pinnacle Pastels, says “I am never at a loss for images and inspiration. Watching how the light changes with the season and trying to capture its beauty. My paintings attempt to recreate the mood, whether a drizzly day in France, foggy sunrise on the mountain, the cocky strutting of a rooster or the curiosity of a pig.”
A few years ago Wilhem discovered pastels and has been hooked ever since. “The vibrancy of the colors and ability to layer them is magical and not for the faint of heart. I consider myself part impressionist, part expressionist and 100% Eileen.”
Wilhem’s work has been juried into exhibitions at The Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts, 311 Gallery in Raliegh, Red Dog Gallery in Winston-Salem, and the Jayebird Gallery at Hanging Rock State Park. She is a featured artist at the Time Bruce Galleries in King and a member of Art for Arts Sake, Piedmont Pastel Society of NC, and has served on the boards of Associated Artists and SECCA.
An opening reception for Eileen Wilhem’s exhibition at the Apple Gallery is being held this Friday, June 8th from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.
