Deb Wheeler-Bean Opening Reception at Art Up Front Street in Exeter is Friday, August 2, from 5pm to 8pm
Wheeler-Bean is a mixed media artist, a teacher, an innovator, an alchemist …creating and living in Exeter, NH. “I look closely at the world – always searching for the beauty within it. But that isn’t a reach for me because I truly see beauty everywhere, in everything. Just as the alchemist strives to change base metal (lead) to precious metal (gold), I strive to use my art to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary.”
Deb finds the “treasure” in raw materials and recycled items, then gives them another beautiful breath. Deb’s eye for finding design and beauty is evident in everything she touches. Whether it’s abstract, pen and ink, a simple pencil sketch, or found objects that will eventually become her next work of art. Sometimes she finds “it”… and sometimes “it” finds her. Whatever way it happens, we are always pulled in.
She is also a writer, poet, and lover of words.
“I want to make art that means something,” she said. “I want to use language, to weave worlds into people’s lives that are going to sustain them and help them through the day.”
See Deb’s collections of natural and found materials re-purposed into soulful art. Opening date is August 2.
Beverages and bites, free parking, plus all artists’ studios at Art Up Front Street will be open.
Her exhibit runs through August 30.
Art Up Front Street is open Tue-Wed 10 – 7, plus Thu-Sat 10-4.
