The Stokes County Arts Council is pleased to announce the opening of an exhibit of original art
by Eileen Wilhelm in the Apple Gallery. A reception is scheduled for Friday, August 19 from
5:30pm-7:00pm in the Apple Gallery of the Stokes County Arts Council 500 Main Street
Danbury, NC.
Wilhelm shared: “Living on a horse farm in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, I am
never at a loss for images and inspiration, watching how the light changes with the seasons and
trying to capture its beauty. My paintings attempt to recreate the mood, whether a drizzly day in
France, foggy sunrise on the mountain, the cocky strutting of a rooster or the curiosity of a pig.
The grace of people and animals enchants me so that I must pick up my pastels and paint. I
mostly paint everyday scenes, which keep me grounded.”
Wilhelm has been juried into numerous exhibits, including:
• The Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts, Winston-Salem
