Wayne Epperly studied painting at the Gloucester Academy of Fine Arts in Massachusetts and has created works that connect human primordial origins with nature. The celebration of life is the foundation of Epperly's work and his artistic style illuminates strength and softness through the elaborate use of subtle earth tones, combined with pulsa! ting colors. A divine aura permeates through the whimsical images and soft finishes of his art aiding his hope for the viewer to become attached to his art in a spiritual way. Epperly has held numerous exhibitions in the U.S., and his art has been featured in several corporate collections.
Grace Li Wang's contemporary paintings are known for their dramatic colors and stylized forms in both representational and abstract presentations. Wang's media is two-dimensional work executed in oil, acrylic, pastels and mixed media. Gallery I features new works from Wang's, "Fields" collection and also exhibits Wang's "Nude Studies" as a tribute to the innate nature of the human figures. Grace transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary through her multihued art.
Gallery II takes a refreshing journey into Grace's vivid works from her Nature collection, which includes art from the "Fields," "Landscapes," and "Flower" series. Grace Li Wang's special edition, signature series of art notecards box sets from the "Nature Collection" have just been released and can be purchased at the Gallery or here on the website.
John Faulkner categorizes his art as neo-impressionism and creates visual images using contrasting bold colors and striking details which provide the viewer with multiple color, light, and structural elements. When viewed from a distance, Faulkner's works become almost three-dimensional images of light and dark. His extensive international travels have provided varied and exotic subject matters for his paintings. Faulkner lives and paints in Cary, North Carolina.
