New Gallery Exhibit Coming Soon!

Art Emporium presents “My Illustrated Life” – Watercolor Reflections by Sharon Harms. Growing up in Chicago, Sharon was always surrounded by great art. Several of her relatives were artists and it always seemed like a natural thing for her. Sharon studied at the Art Institute of Chicago from the time she was eight years old until college age when she enrolled at the American Academy of Art to focus on communication art, graphic design and illustration. Thirty years ago she relocated to West Virginia to work as an illustrator for a large paper product manufacturer. She fell in love with the state and all of its natural beauty. Sharon’s work reflects her love of nature and gardening and her personal experiences. Painting is as much a therapy as a joy in my life. “My Illustrated Life,” is a series of recently completed watercolors that reflect the beauty and magic in Sharon’s life. Her works will be on display September 17- October 13.
