Gallery 26 - Fine Arts in All Mediums

{ FEBRUARY ART WALK - 2/5/16 6-9PM }

Please join us at the Gallery for a fun evening as we host our featured artist, Bill White. Bill is the owner of Island Glass Art and shares a passion for the sea, its wildlife and the scenic beauty of coral reefs and marine settings. His combined experience as a pharmacist, served in Viet Nam as a Helicopter Pilot, and Charter Fishing Boat Captain have all contributed throughout his life to developing his heartfelt and animated sea-life artwork.

For 25 years Bill has designed and developed techniques that allow him to capture the “life of the sea” through three-dimensional movement with vivid life-like color. Each sculpture is one-of-kind piece of art and is paired with with specialty wood bases carved to create distinctive wall and table art, trophies, and furniture. To help further the uniqueness of each piece, Bill uses hard to find southern woods found in Georgia and the Carolinas and often places distinctive LED lighting situated within the piece to enhance and emphasize color, shape and movement.

Start with beautiful grained and carved wood, add a deeply carved glass sculpture gently painted and enhanced to emulate a life-like quality, and then finish with distinctive lighting for unparalleled effect. The blend of careful and individual design and execution results in extraordinary, distinctive piece that speaks to one’s love of the sea -- its sense of beauty, movement, and color.
