One of my favorite things about living in Providence is meeting people who are doing what they love, and good at doing it — like Holly Wach.
A recent transplant from California, Holly hosted her first Rhode Island show last weekend out of her home studio in Providence. There, I had the chance to tour her studio, learn about her process, and see her art up close. I even purchased a print of “Surrender” pictured above. Let’s just say it reminds me of someone I know.
Holly’s art will be featured in a solo show at the Morris Gallery of Contemporary Art at Missouri Valley College this December, and she’ll be representing Rhode Island in “Figure 50 2016,” a juried online interactive map featuring one artist from every state.
You can explore some of her art on her website and sign-up to be hear about her upcoming shows.
And if you think you might have what it takes to be an artist yourself, she also offers private art lessons.
