The Village Barn presents: Nicole Wolf - Multi Medium Artist

The Village Barn’s October featured art exhibition will be Nicole Wolf of Aspire Designs. On hand at this exhibit will be sculptures, paintings and trompe l'œil painted furniture for all art enthusiasts to enjoy.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

"I have always loved art in all forms, sculpture, furniture, gardening, architecture even television. I am visually stimulated. While working I began taking classes that interested me from drawing and painting to woodworking. In the interim I was married, renovated two houses and had my daughter Lily. When I wanted something I couldn’t afford to buy, I made it.


My love for antiques, a quest for bargains and a little creative ingenuity has inspired many one of a kind pieces. As time passed I started to receive requests asking me to find and create unique treasures. Although my pieces can sometimes be found in local antique shops most of my work is commissioned. Any time I can challenge myself by painting or making something for someone, it’s wonderful. I can’t think of anything I’d rather do."

THIS EVENT IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC FOR ALL TO ENJOY.

Skippack Days Arts & Crafts Festival 2010 INFORMATION

"Skippack is about 2.5 square mile town located on Rte 73 headed out towards Lansdale and Montgomeryville area. When I got out there for Skippack Days, I wandered through tents and stores that had sidewalk sales items set out. In addition to all the great stores having great fall sales, vendors were set up for Skippack Days..."

"As I was wandering around Skippack Days, I heard a lady saying to a friend that even though real estate and rent is going up, people are committed to keeping Skippack small and quaint, and it’s true. This is a great little town."

The Village Barn presents: Shannon M. Miller - Fine Art Photographer

Current Exhibition

Shannon M. Miller

Fine Art Photographer

Sept. 1st -Sept. 30, 2010

Reception: To Be Announced





ABOUT THE ARTIST
Shannon Miller is a photographer based in Lederach, PA. She currently owns a full-time commercial photography business while exhibiting her photographs in galleries throughout the United States. She graduated in 1994 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Photographic Arts and Sciences from the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester N.Y. Like most of Shannon’s work, some of these images are purposefully vague with respect to subject matter. They provide a window into an exotic, slightly foreign universe, allowing the viewer to drive meaning from them without pretense. Her intent is to focus on the interplay of color, light, shadows, and reflections with various natural textures. A successful image for Shannon is one that plucks the strings of thoughtfulness, meaning, and emotion in others. Pennsylvania.
