For the month of August, the Village Gallery welcomes Angela Tommaso Hellman, oil painter, as its guest artist.
An opening reception will be held showing Angela's work on Saturday, August 6 from 2:00 until 5:00 PM at The Village Gallery, 300 Hodges Street in Oriental.
Growing up on Staten Island, Angela began painting when she was five under the tutelage of a neighboring artist. She continued instruction and painting throughout her adolescence and graduated from Flagler College in Saint Augustine majoring in graphic design and fine art. As an adult, she taught worked as a graphic designer and taught elementary school art. She currently lives in Cary and is a member of the Waverly Artists Group there.
Angela enjoys painting many different subjects favoring figures, still lifes, landscapes, and beach scenes. She describes that the warmth of the sand on her feet and her face, the rhythm of the waves, and the laughter of children at the beach relax and rejuvenate her, allowing her to let her cares slip away and completely live in the moment. Representing those feelings through art enables those memories to linger and she hopes to share those feelings with those who view her art.
The Gallery is located at 300 Hodges Street in Oriental, NC . The gallery’s display changes frequently with different artists and works presented.
