The opening exhibit of the “Autumn Texture ” show on Oct. 1, 2009 , featuring internationally collected artist Wanda Pepin, was a great success.
The Autumn Texture Show, a continuation of Pepin’s exploration of texture, styles and finishes through acrylic and a variety of acrylic media, will be up the entire month of October 2009. It is being held at The Artists Alley is located at 863 Mission St. San Francisco, CA.
The placement and design of the Autumn Texture show within the gallery space was beautiful. One of the local university Art Appreciation classes toured the exhibit on opening night, as well as patrons of the SF art walk strolled through.
Wanda Pepin has become known for her vibrant paintings depicting the simple wonders of nature. Autumn is her favorite season and this show enthusiastically showcases her passion for it. Trees exploding with vivacious color, closeups revealing the texture of leaves and bark, generous paint application, creative design plus the many diversities of the autumn landscape all come together to comprise a visually stimulating collection.
Wanda Pepin is a professional, internationally collected artist who paints primarily with a palette knife. She lives and works from her studio in Southern Oregon .Over the years, she has fine tuned her style and the technique she uses is recognized as uniquely her own. Many of her paintings have been sold all over the world, and are held in private collections in Cyprus, Australia, England, Canada, Mexico, etc. Her paintings have enjoyed a steady increase in value. They are not only an incredible addition to one’s art collection; they are also a solid financial investment. Prices of her paintings have increased every year, for example a 16” x 20” painting that sold for $300 three years ago is worth $1250 today!
