Andrea Burke in the Robert F. Cage Art Gallery

Posted on in General

Showtime at The Prizery 271x400

Clarksville artist, Andrea Burke, will open her exhibit at the Robert F. Cage Art Gallery at The Prizery with a reception on Sunday, November 8th from 3:00pm – 5:00pm. The exhibit will continue through December.

Art has always been a part of Andrea’s life in one way or another with many types of venues from piano, violin, and oboe; to clay, bread dough, tole painting and lots of sewing. She took her first watercolor class at the San Diego Art Museum in 2000, and has been hooked ever since with the variety of textures, the movement of the paint in the water, the array of techniques, and the endless potential for continuous growth!

Andrea has been blessed with many teachers and mentors since then. She has studied with nationally known artists: Lynn Ferris; Laurie Goldstein-Warren; Sterling Edwards; Laurie Humble; and Karlyn Holman. Her latest teacher is Susan Harrison-Tustain of New Zealand! Her techniques and style have taken Andrea to places in her heart she has never been before! It's changing the way she thinks about subjects to paint - looking for the story, the relationship, the feelings. She has not been excited like this about art in a long, long time! She has been accepted as a Signature Member of the West Virginia Watercolor Society since 2013.

Andrea and her husband, Jim, have recently moved to Clarksville, VA to a wonderful lake community on the border of North Carolina in September of 2013. Her artwork is featured for sale locally at “The Galleria on the Lake” in downtown Clarksville, along with many other artists. She loves to paint, and as Jim says, “it’s cheaper than therapy!” For more information about Andrea and her work, visit www.watercolorsbyandreaburke.com.
