FAYETTEVILLE, WEST VIRGINIA
Ginger is a full-time artist living in Fayetteville, WV with her husband and daughter. Having juried into Tamarack in 2010, Ginger's work has been selected for the “Best of Tamarack” juried exhibitions each year since 2010. Her acrylic painting of the Cathedral Cafe in Fayetteville, was selected for inclusion in Tamarack's 2012 “Best of Tamarack” calendar.
Ginger enjoys the multi-sensory experience of painting, especially the buttery texture and warm vibrant colors of acrylic paints, and layers color and texture to achieve depth in her paintings. She has recently been experimenting with collage using scraps from her own paintings as well as found papers and recycled materials. Ginger's depictions of the New River Gorge in Fayetteville are created using this technique and one of her images was chosen as the official poster for Bridge Day, 2011.
Active in her community, Ginger serves as Chair of the Fayetteville Arts Coalition, an organization dedicated to promoting the arts in the New River Gorge area. She was instrumental in launching the Coalition's “Creative Juices” initiative, a monthly painting event for adult painters of all skill levels. Ginger also teaches art to elementary students at the New River Gorge Learning Cooperative, a Montessori-based learning center in Fayetteville.
In addition to Tamarack, Ginger's work is on display in several West Virginia galleries, including Art Emporium in Charleston and Cynthia Bickey Gallery in Beckley.
