West Virgina artist Sharon Lyn Stackpole will be opening a show of new work at The Purple Moon during this month’s ArtWalk which feature the artist’s colorful and quirky assemblages and paintings.
Born in 1969, Sharon is a native West Virginian who studied painting and art history at Fairmont State and West Virginia University. After art school, she worked for some time as a newspaper reporter and columnist in West Virginia, and still maintains a daily blog. She is a strong supporter of arts in education and lobbies for the restoration of art instruction at the primary grade levels in West Virginia.
Stackpole introduces a new style in this show – which she refers to as Intricates – small and very detailed paintings which incorporate her colorful view of life and the world around her.
Assemblages and Intricates opens on Thursday, August 19th, with a reception from 5 to 8p.m. Live music will be provided by Charleston-based Tofujitsu.
