February Featured Artist - Julia Sawyer
If you've ever been to Over The Falls in downtown Wake Forest, you've seen the impressive chalkboards displaying the restaurant's weekly specials and events. You've probably also been served by Julia Sawyer, creator of these chalkboards. Did you know she also creates other pieces of art?
Julia is a Franklin Academy alumn and spent her first semester of college studying at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. Her goal is to become an art therapist, a unique form of therapy that allows patients to process their experiences through the arts. She enjoys working with any medium but is frequently drawn to acrylics, which allow for experimentation in her art.
This month, Julia is the featured artist at The Cotton Company in downtown Wake Forest. The Cotton Company will host a special artist reception for Julia on Friday, February 12th from 6pm to 9pm as part of the town's Art After Hours program. Come on out and meet Julia while enjoying samples of our house wines, light refreshment, and the musicial stylings of Alice Osborn who will be playing both originals and covers of songs from the 80s and 90s.
Julia's art will hang from February 7 to March 6 in the gallery at The Cotton Company. This event is free and open to the public, and all artwork is available for purchase.
