The Art of Michelle Vyn: Showing from May 31 to June 26, 2019, with artist reception on Sat., June 15, 1 – 3 pm.
An Artist Talk is planned for Saturday, June 15 @ 1:30. As a Wildlife & Landscape Artist, Michelle paints flora & fauna subjects from around the world, often endangered species and the keystone species of our planet. She paints to share her love of creation, and to increase awareness of its beauty and our obligation to care for it.
One of the painting techniques Michelle has developed independently over the past few years has involved the building of texture on canvas or wood with acrylic mediums, by sculpting over the surface while it is still wet, which she paints over when dry. Time and care are taken in the shaping of delicate strands of animal fur, the roughness of tree bark and the coarseness of granite rock, with depth and layers of colour throughout. The details in the texture are better seen in person.
