Michelle ConnollyMoving to Wilmington NC from Sydney Australia in 2007 has been a blessing in disguise for Michelle Connolly -- she is able to work full time as an artist in her studio at ACME Art Studios. She goes to work with a constant stream of ideas and creative energy and creates a variety of artwork -- paintings, drawings, and prints. Probably best known for works of the Emu bird, she explores various subjects for her paintings. Connolly characters are often formed from other wild creatures such as goats, rabbits, dingos, and birds. Recent work includes portraits of friends she has made in Wilmington. She enjoys working in oil paint but also likes to explore other materials, enjoying texture in her paintings. The subject is irrelevant. Whether an animal, a bird, a person, or a landscape, Connolly brings her unique interpretation to the work. The subject is just a point of departure for the artwork, a starting point for the experiment to begin. Connolly's show will open February 4th from 6:00PM until 9:00PM and will remain on display through February.
