JONAS HALL

Opening July 13th: Phyllis Burkhart Wilson and Lana Wilson

The Creative Arts Guild will be hosting Mother-Daughter Artist Duo, Phyllis Burkhart Wilson and Lana Wilson, during the month of July in our Jonas Hall. Collectively, these two artists have been making art for over 50 years — and we're excited to be able to present their work side-by-side for the first time.

About Phyllis Burkhart Wilson:

My career as an artist grew out of a deep appreciation for the arts. In 1983, I began to experiment with ink, graphic pencils, and watercolors. Being able to express my innermost spirit with the elements of painting is an exhilarating experience, a gift from God. Natural settings and music inspire me to create contemporary paintings using watercolors and colored pencils. My paintings have been chosen to be included in numerous juried regional exhibitions by extraordinary art professionals and are also in included in many private collections.

About Lana Wilson:

My works represent a very contemporary approach to painting. In an unorthodox approach, the act of making art becomes more important than the actual image. I am involved in each creation by responding to forms which develop images over images, lines, spacial formats, and colors pleasing to the eye and stimulating to the mind.
