Paintings by the Wednesday Art Pals
WKNO presents "Inspirations," a collection of works by the Wednesday Art Pals Carolyn Moss, Daphne Stephens, Pat Hester, Wilbur Edmiston, and Christie Payne, a group of artists who paint together at Advent Presbyterian Church. The artists paint independently of one another, using different styles and subject matter. "Inspirations" was chosen because they all have different sources of inspiration for their paintings, and find encouragement and inspiration from each other.
Carolyn Moss is a former art teacher at Trezevant High School and Auburndale School, and was the Publisher of Memphis Apartment Guide for 16 years. "Some of my paintings are abstract and others are realistic. I love the beach and enjoy painting shells. I could paint the same shell and it would be different every time." She also likes to combine her love of design with carefully planned shapes and colors, at times including graphics, numbers, letters, even words.
Wilbur Edmiston is the only male in the group, played football in college and loves to paint animals and birds. He has fabulous eye to hand coordination, so he captures his images quickly and conservatively literally out of the tube-wasting very little paint. He discovered his ability in the first grade when he could draw the best Santa Claus in the class.
Pat Hester is an abstract artist, and paints in vivid reds and other pure bright pigments. A very expressive painter, she uses subtle variations of color to keep the viewer looking and dreaming about what the painting means to them.
Christie Payne just loves to paint but works as a counselor and has to balance her time carefully. She has a series of paintings she has just completed in mostly gray tones; her inspiration came from concrete sculpture images. The angles she chooses add to the excitement of creations.
Daphne Stephens loves to paint things that make her happy. She has painted for several years in watercolor, oil and acrylic. Daphne is into big art out of gallon buckets, and paints sets for events at Advent Presbyterian Church - Vacation Bible School, Dinner Theatre or Christmas pageants.
