As everything begins to shift back to normal, we start to get back to what we missed, one of those things being First Friday. We couldn’t imagine a better way to kick off the festivities than with some amazing artists, this month we will be featuring Professor Cara Walton, who was been featured in ArtSpace, The 1650 Gallery, and the Louvre.
Cara Walton is a self-proclaimed “accidental artist” and Star Wars nerd who uses photography to take a step away from the stress that comes with work, life, and being an educator through the pandemic. Between being a high school World History professor, and teaching photography for educators at James Madison University, Walton makes time to find the beauty in abandonment. Her work focuses on the details of decay and utilizes black and white tones to hone in on fine aspects that would otherwise be lost in full-color prints. On the other hand, she expresses her love of color through tie-dye work and exemplifies a selective eye when it comes to when and how to utilize the rainbow.
We could not be more thrilled to host such a talented artist at The CW Depot and begin to shift back to normal, celebrating art and music once again as a community.
Walton’s work will be on display during the month of September 2021 but to check out more of Cara’s art browse: Instagram, Facebook, and Fine Art America. You can also learn more or RSVP to this event here.
