"Wandering & Wondering" Exhibition Opens at Marlor House Sunday, January 6 |
Title (Max 100 Characters)
The public is invited to the opening reception of “Wandering and Wondering” on Sunday, January 6 from 1:00 to 3:00 pm at the Marlor House, 201 North Wayne Street, Milledgeville, Georgia.
“Wandering and Wondering” is an exhibit of new works by Pam Beagle Daresta. Daresta creates monoprint works inspired by the natural world and memorable ways we live and connect with nature. She works with recycled papers and uses a variety of techniques including layering, intaglio printing, chine colle and relief processes and often hand colors parts of the final image.
According to Daresta, “This body of work originated from my fascination for the natural world. Watching the world of insects and learning the scientific order for the patterns and cycles of the natural world fascinates me. My works echo the universal connectedness I sense with nature as the point of inquiry to making art. The works are the resonance of my explorations and imagination, or my wandering and wondering”.
Daresta is a graduate of the Ringling School of Art and is on the teaching rosters with Mississippi Arts Commission, South Carolina Arts Commission, Georgia Art Council, Young Audiences St. Louis/ Atlanta, and High Museum of Art. She conducts curriculum integrated residences in printmaking, papermaking/book-arts, murals and sculpture. Her professional development workshops connect learning core curriculum content with visual literacy skills in writing and drawing.
She has been the featured professional development instructor for Cobb County School System art teachers for the past 6 years. She has served as professional development programming presenter for the Mississippi Arts Commission Whole Schools Institute, St. Louis Schools Systems, North Carolina RESA, South Carolina Arts Education Conference, Macon Arts Council, and the Carlos Museum of Emory University.
According to arts director Randy Cannon, “Pam has been a frequent guest artist at Allied Arts. She has taught summer arts camps for youth and adult classes in drawing, painting and printmaking for the past fifteen years. This exhibition really demonstrates Pam's versitility and talent as an artist."
“Wandering and Wondering” will be on display through Friday, February 8. There is no admission fee charged to visit the gallery. For additional information call Allied Arts at 478.452.3950 or visit www.milledgevillealliedarts.com .
