Teresa Prince is August
Teresa Prince is the August Featured Artist with her unique style of painting. The show will run through August.
Teresa does 3-D mixed media. "I take old items and repurpose them. For example, a dresser drawer with a beautiful painting inside," stated Prince. "Several other examples of repurposing is using globes of ceiling fans and weathered wood for paintings. I like to think 'outside the box' ".
She started experimenting with left-over house paint in her work although it is more difficult to paint with and dries darker. This is now one of the unique aspects of her painting.
"Art is a way to connect with people. My next big project will be a large mural for a business in Urichsville on 3rd Street, formerly Virginia's Tea Room.at the Arts.
