NC Whimsical Artist Scott Plaster is from the North Carolina Piedmont Triad area and has been creating whimsical paintings for 30 years. His line of”Whimsical Animals” has been featured in the Community Arts Cafe and the GoTriad NC artists section and is available for sale in art galleries, art boutiques, and shops around the NC Triad region, and from the Mountains of North Carolina all the way to the Coast. Matted ready-to-frame art repro¬ductions of the original whimsical oil paintings are sold in various sizes, art note card sets, art greeting cards, art posters, and even stickers.

Scott grew up in Denton, NC and was exposed to art at an early age. He still remembers how his father would draw Picaso-esque figures for his son to paint with basic student tempura paints on manilla drawing paper. When some kids were awaiting video games and toys from Santa Claus for Christmas, Plaster was eager to get paint, canvas, and pastels. Plaster was oil painting by the age of ten and found his inspiration in the works of Van Gogh, the French Impressionists, other early modern artists, and North Carolina artists like Bob Timberlake and Andrew Wyeth. As a self-taught artist, Plaster began subscribing to The Artists’ Magazine as a teenager and immersed himself in art history and technique books of a broad variety. Plaster maintained these interests into his young adulthood, but he did not initially pursue a career in art.

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, but that concept could not apply more than in the collage “stories” of Perry Boswell. These unique collages of Davidson County native and teacher are part antique, part history, part memorabilia, and part artistic creation. Boswell features his work at the Cosmic Cow Society.

Boswell explains, “I have become fascinated with the personal information that people leave when they pass away. I often find it in old books, locked drawers, and dusty boxes tucked away in remote corners. I’ve come to look at these scraps as fragments of the soul.” Scouring booths, boxes, and racks at antique stores, flea markets, and yard sales for items that speak to him, Boswell reconstructs these stories in the form of creative collages that incorporate a variety of artistic techniques in their construction. A line of music from a hymnal might reinforce a theme. A 100-year old scrawled note on the margin of a book might form part of the story line. Family photos from an album might demonstrate the passage of time. Three-dimensional items add texture, interest, and color. Each of Boswell’s creations tells a story that cannot be absorbed in a single sitting or reading, like a complex work of literature that can be read and reread. Every time you look at one of Boswell’s creations, you see a new detail that adds to its story.

This month through January 2011, we are pleased to show works by artist Addison Paige. All artists are drawn to making art from basically the same deep need to create something visual to express who we are and what we have a need to say. Addison is an artist because it is who she is and what she does. She couldn’t imagine doing anything else with her life. Art colors the way she views the world around her, and the world affects the way she makes art. Her work is full of past influences, personal history, and emotional interactions.

She has worked with many different types of art and materials over the years from painting wood to making custom clocks and mirrors sold through galleries across the country. In 1995, Addison joined her brother, Eric Paige, and founded “What will the neighbors think?” Soon after, they began producing custom plexiglass works.

This month through September, we are pleased to show works by artist David Welch. A native of Wilmington, NC, David is on a never-ending journey of self discovery as an expression of his inner creative spirit. He began as a child sketching anything and everything with pencil, then moving into pen and ink comic book character design. As a teenager, he became fascinated with clay sculpting and charcoal portraits.

Over time, David has showcased his works in media such as character design for animated film shorts and comics as well as several murals including one featured at the NC School of Communication Arts to honor the families affected by the 911 attacks.

“I loved the creative expression that art allowed me to have no matter what medium was available. No rules just the quiet bliss of my imagination.”

David now lives in Sanford, NC with his wife, Karen and sons, Gabriel and Israel. For more info visit http://www.daggerroom.com/jdwelch/ or email David at:jdwelchideastolife@gmail.com

This month through July, we are pleased to show works by artist Richard Jason. Richard has been working with wood as a craftsman for 20 years. He has recently discovered a new twist to his passion – how to bring nature closer to those who may not be so fortunate to truly experience and appreciate it.

Each piece is individually custom handcrafted with birch or oak so you are guaranteed that your piece will be a “one-of-a-kind”.

Richard’s works will be on display and for sale at Studio 180 Salon starting in April, 2010 and we will be hosting an artist reception on Friday, April 30th 6-9pm.
