"Metamorphosis II," a new exhibit featuring works by muralist and illustrator Celia Wester, will be displayed in the Rebecca Randall Bryan Art Gallery in the Fine Arts Building at Coastal Carolina University from Friday, Jan. 24 through Friday, Feb. 21. Wester will discuss her work at the exhibit's opening reception, scheduled for 6 p.m. on Jan. 24. The opening reception and the exhibit are free and open to the public.
A self-taught artist, Wester says she began her career at the age of three when her father gave her permission to color her bedroom walls. In 1991, she started her own mural business, painting both businesses and homes. In her native North Carolina, Wester's customers have ranged from Northeast Medical Hospital in Charlotte to NASCAR driver Rusty Wallace. Her work includes murals, book illustrations, drawings, carved dimensional exhibits and paintings.
The Rebecca Randall Bryan Art Gallery is located in the Thomas W. and Robin W. Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts Building on the Coastal Carolina University campus. Parking is available in three lots adjacent to the building on Chanticleer Drive West.
Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information call 349-2711.
