Florida artist Beau Wild's work is now on display at the Ormond Memorial Art Museum.
Wild's exhibit, titled "Observation Stories: The Wild Years," features 82 art pieces, according to a press release. It opened with a reception on Thursday, Aug. 24, and will run for seven weeks.
“We are so pleased to announce this exhibition and to give our community a glimpse into the amazing and inspiring career of Beau Wild," Museum Director Stephanie Mason-Teague said. "OMAM has had a special relationship with Beau for many years. It is our honor to host this very personal and intimate view of her life’s work."
Wild, a Daytona Beach native, returned to her hometown in 1983 after 22 years of living in New England. She worked as a therapist and painter, and her studio is currently located in Port Orange.
"Held in private and public collections around the world, Wild's paintings are inspired by her personal experiences, emotions, and observations," the press release states.
The exhibit was curated by Fran Gardner, an art professor at the University of South Carolina Lancaster.
