Victor Berg- Participating artist at Winter Art Market

We are so pleased to announce local artist, Victor Berg as a participating artist. His work can be found all throughout Greenville, South Carolina. Just a few places are Appalachian Outfitters, the Life if Good store and of course, Winter Art Market.

Victor has been a high end residential contractor for most so has come across amazing, vintage wood from around Greenville while on job sites. Victor hand selects unique pieces of wood with age marks, bee holes and natural antiquing. The stories behind each piece are worth stopping by Victors tent, not to mention his beautiful hand-turned creations. Were ecstatic to have Victor Berg as a participating artist, his craftsmanship is nothing less than pure excellence. 

and ps... Winter Art Market is TOMORROW!!!!! ;) Make sure to come see Victor Berg, our wood turner!

Cassia Leidigh- Participating artist the 2nd Annual WAM

make artworks because it is natural for me. I have been drawing almost all of my life. When I see someone with a particular facial structure I imagine painting them in my head, looking at the shadows and shapes of their face. This is inspiration for me. I enjoy looking at and recreating people around me.

In painting a picture I usually start out by taking photographs. By taking the photos myself I can chose the mood and angle of the picture. I enjoy unusual natural poses for portraits. I then sketch the drawing, sometimes on paper first, sometimes directly on the canvas. After that I block in general colors and try to get right relationships between objects. I then try to perfect the painting till it looks satisfactory to me.

I mainly paint with oil and watercolor. Both are delicious. Watercolor paints are enjoyable because of the blending possibilities and freedom of the medium. However I enjoy oil paints best because of the control you can have with the paint. I also like the smooth texture of oil paints.

My artwork for me portrays my love for the human figure. It communicates my interest in the beautiful things around me. To express a feeling or a situation in such a way that it communicates to the viewer is to me a success. Another thing I like to do is to draw attention to things that usually go unnoticed. I would like to cause people to look closer at the vegetables on the table catching the light, or the random trashcan in the corner. My art is an expression of my thoughts, my feelings, my intellect, and myself.

She's brilliant! Check out her work during the 2nd Annual Winter Art Market at Art Crossing
