Short of seeing it live, scrolling art across a screen is unexpectedly satisfying. Take a look at WLM’s Virtual Gallery this month and brighten your day.

This show features the ChromoAlchemy photographs of Kim Tinuviel and a variety of work by printmaker, carver, painter Diane Tompkinson. Both artists have created a happy variety of surface texture, color and design.

Watch color, texture, pixels, paint, cuts, print, design, forms, faces and gestures move in a kind of carousel of art across the screen. One artist takes rust on metal to a new place, while the other gathers you in through her intricate hand, and her sweet inspiration from the animal world.

WLM Virtual Gallery curator Anne Belov, a painter in her own right, does a nice job of finding two artists for this gallery whose work is an excellent complement to each other.
