Sky Art Holds Reception for Artist
On Friday, Oct. 6, from 6 to 8 p.m. Sky Art Gallery celebrates the opening of a new show, "Finding the Path Again," featuring paintings by local artist, Teri Elmore.
"The public is invited to meet the artist and enjoy a glass of wine, some hors'deuvres and a look at this wonderful work," says a spokesman for the gallery.
Teri Elmore has been painting since she was a child growing up in Pasadena, Calif. She studied art in college and eventually fashion design under the tutelage of Charles Teske (who also taught Bob Mackie) and went on to work in the fashion industry in Los Angeles. One of her job duties as assistant designer was rendering fashion designs for Women's Wear Daily. She went on to become owner/manager of a goldsmith shop in San Marino, Calif.
In 1996 Elmore re-connected with watercolor painting by taking three steps: reading "The Artists Way" by Julia Cameron, taking a watercolor class with Alice Baxter at Sandhills Community College and joining the Artists League of the Sandhills, where she is still an active member, participating in workshops whenever possible and volunteer duties when time allows. She has studied locally with several artists.
Elmore resides in Pinewild with her husband of 22 years, Bob, and dog Jasper, adopted from Animal Advocates.
Elmore's show will be on exhibit at Sky Art Gallery from Oct. 6-31. The gallery, located at 602 Magnolia Drive in Aberdeen (behind Applebee's) is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from noon until 5 p.m. For more information call 944-9440 or visit the Web site www.skyartphoto.com.
