Crawford Featured at Gallery Eleven
Gallery Eleven’s Featured Artist for ArtWalk Thursday, Aug. 20 is JoeAnn Crawford, an award winning West Virginia artist who is included in several state, national and corporate collections.
She is a graduate of West Virginia University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. She has served on boards of state art associations and as a chair for Allied Artists juried shows.
“My father encouraged my dream by teaching me to observe the beauty of nature and to appreciate all the gifts which I had been given,” Crawford said. “He taught me how to respect and love nature by showing me newly formed buds of a leaf or how the sunlight dappled the ground,”
In her art, she enjoys depicting West Virginia’s natural scenic beauty. For this exhibit, she has chosen some vivid floral watercolors.
