The Stokes County Arts Council is pleased to announce the opening of an exhibit of original art by Eileen Wilhem in the Apple Gallery. A reception is scheduled for Saturday, May 25 from 3:30pm-5:00pm in the Apple Gallery of the Stokes County Arts Council 500 Main Street Danbury, NC. Wilhem shared: “Living on a horse farm in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, I am never at a loss for images and inspiration. Watching how the light changes with the seasons and trying to capture its beauty. My paintings attempt to recreate the mood, whether a drizzly day in France, foggy sunrise on the mountain, the cocky strutting of a rooster or the curiosity of a pig. The grace of people and animals enchants me so that I must pick up my pastels and paint. I mostly paint everyday scenes, which keep me grounded.” Wilhelm has been juried into numerous exhibitions, including: • The Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts, Winston-Salem • 311 Gallery, Raleigh • Red Dog Gallery, Winston-Salem • Hanging Rock Gallery (Solo exhibit) • Apple Gallery (Solo exhibit) • Red Dog Gallery Featured Artist exhibit • The Art Gallery, Greensboro • Ambleside Gallery, Greensboro • Welborn Gallery (Yadkinville Cultural Arts Center) • Captain White’s Gallery (Alamance Arts) • Left Coast Pastel Society 2022 International Show • North Carolina Statewide Exhibition multiple times Wilhelm is a featured local artist at The Arts Place of Stokes, and the Red Dog Gallery.
