Gallery 1001 in Winfield is pleased to host two talented artists in the area for the months of July and August. Sandy Stucky and Rebecca Ward will be honored in a welcome reception during the July Art Walk, July 7 from 5 pm until 7 pm. A regular feature of the Winfield Arts and Humanities Council, this Art Walk is one you won’t want to miss.
Sandy Stucky of Belle Plaine will showcase her favorite photographs. An experienced photographer, she has had scenes selected and shown in a juried exhibit at the Derby Public Library.
Rebecca Ward of Udall will display her talent in drawing and painting. A self-taught artist, she has lived most of her life in Cowley County except for four years in New York where she worked with the US Coast Guard. During her years in New York, she discovered her passion for art and worked every spare minute on perfecting her style. “Art is my one true calling,” Ward says with no hesitation.
Though she has no official training, Ward credits her enthusiasm and her style to her admiration for artists Lena Danya, Tanya Shateva, Audra Aclair, Christing Ward, Wendy Ortiz, and Brandon Seafer. True to her youth, she displays her products and her process online with time-lapse entries of several works-in-progress. For a sample see: https://youtu.be/7FjtHhiLV6U
Stop by Gallery 1001 July 7 from 5 pm to 7 pm to meet these talented artists. The Gallery at 10th and Main will also celebrate the season with an ice cream social on the sidewalk outside the gallery. A selection of artistic dessert bowls handcrafted by Gallery 1001 member artists will be on display. For a supporting contribution, guests can select their favorite bowl and add a scoop of ice cream, complete with toppings. Chill with the artists as you enjoy the summer evening and welcome Stucky and Ward.
