Featured Artist May 1-31: Deborah Whitman
...sculptor, nature illustrator, architectural coloring book illustrator of "The Painted Ladies of Norwich" and local muralist, is the featured artist at Made In Chenango Gallery and Gift Shop for the month of May. Whitman will have a large selection of her wood carvings and outdoor cement sculptures for sale along with her pen and ink illustrations of regional and national sites she has toured.
Deborah says of her work, "the main theme of my sculptures is love, respect and support between individuals, whether it's lovers, friends, adults and children, the love of the self, and even honoring the spirit within nature. As I draw the nature scenes I'm taken back to that location and, with every dot and dash, I re-live the experience of the wind, the smells, the lighting. The whole process becomes a meditation outside of time."
Ms. Whitman has been supporting and promoting the local art scene with her membership in Made In Chenango since its inception, as a previous gallery director at Chenango Arts Council and exhibitor at Colorscape Arts Festival and painter of the Eaton Center murals and the new canal boat mural on Nina's restaurant in downtown Norwich. Deborah was also the team leader for the Norwich streetscape committee that was influential in choosing the renovations that took place on Broad street in the 1990's. Throughout her art career Whitman has exhibited in juried exhibits such as the prestigious "North American Sculpture Exhibit" in Colorado, the "Loveland Invitational Sculpture Show" in Colorado, the Schweinfurth Museum "Made in NY", five years in Colorscape Art Festival and numerous other juried exhibits throughout Colorado, New York and Washington D.C.
