Arts for ACT Gallery welcomes artist Carolyn Walega in April. An opening reception is planned for Friday, April 1 from 6 to 9 p.m. in conjunction with the monthly Fort Myers Art Walk.
Carolyn Dlouhy Walega studied at The School of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, Swain School of Design in New Bedford, Massachusetts, and UMass Dartmouth where she was a candidate in the Master’s Program with a major in Painting and minor in Video after receiving two Bachelors of Fine Arts Degrees in Painting and Art Education from Swain and UMD.
Carolyn is a painter of leaves, trees, and organic forms which are a recurring subject matter in paintings like “Banana Ballet,” “Palmwheelata,” “Pinwheelata,” “Pomegranate” and “Regina Palmata” which accent nature, the abstract, and flow of movement. In the subtropical environment of southwest Florida, she is finding inspiration in its beautiful banana and palm trees.
She began her Florida art life with a one-artist show “Banana ex Machina” at Lemon Bay Theater, Englewood, and an exhibit at the Charlotte Arts Gallery. She was a participant in a Tarpon Springs Art Guild show, Century 21, the Venice Island Gallery and the Olde Englewood Fine and Homemade Arts Fair.
During her art career, she served as Artist in Residence for the Town of Fairhaven, Massachusetts where she designed an open studio, educational programs, a playground design, and art events for the community. She was a gallery director / art consultant in three Los Angeles galleries as well as a private consultant of cubist, impressionist, and modern art. She was a member of the Massachusetts Cultural Council in Mattapoisett, Massachusetts, the Arts Lottery Council of Fairhaven, and a current Artist Member of the Arts and Humanities Council of Port Charlotte, Florida.
Come view all of the creative artworks of over 50 artists and support ACT Gallery.
This exhibit continues through May 2.
