Carol Hess to be Featured Artist on May 19, 2016
Hosted By Berkshire Hathaway

Local artist Carol Hess will be featured at Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Realty Office showroom at 100 Beach Dr., Suite 101, St. Petersburg on Thursday, May 19 from 5 – 8 pm. Wine, beer, water and light snacks will be served. The public is invited to this free reception to meet the artist during this one night pop up gallery.

Carol has always had a creative side. Lacking any formal art training, she has always been drawn into the creative process from early childhood.

She discovered watercolors in 1990 and had worked exclusively in the medium for many years. More recently Carol has focused her attention to working in oils, pastels and colored pencil. This move gave her the freedom to experiment with process and design. Her newest pieces invite the viewer to explore and participate in the work. Ms. Hess intensifies color to create contrast in form. The viewer is lead into a world where everything is not as it appears to be.

The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance is the umbrella organization serving the arts and cultural community: advocating for the arts; facilitating the growth of the arts community; and driving arts-related economic development in St. Petersburg.
