April Waltz at Art Emporium

Monday, October 17th, 2011

FireescapesmThe Art Emporium is featuring Wheeling, WV artist April Waltz in “April Waltz Does the Charleston: Choreography in Color” for the October Artwalk.

April strives to create works that are playful in their composition while being stimulating and surprising in color. She likes to contrast the monotony of pattern against something more random looking, much like a dance improvisation in shapes and colors. She is an abstractionist at heart, and her sweeping flow, simple geometry, and rich solid colors are the building blocks that offer infinite possibilities.

Through practice and determination, she has honed a precise style that lends serenity to her pieces and lets the universal elements shine through.

This exhibit will run through November 12th.
