LEWISBURG, W.Va. (Hinton News) – Carnegie Hall’s spring exhibits are underway with three new galleries featuring the works of regional artists. The Auditorium Lobby Gallery features Virginia artist Dana Wheeles’ “Mandala Journeys.”
Wheeles is a meditation teacher, life coach, and artist in Central Virginia. From client work to painting and podcasting, she says her work invites people to slow down and relax into their innate wholeness.
Wheeles’ Deerhawk Art Studio began with her paintings of animals paired with mandalas. Living in the countryside outside of Charlottesville, Virginia, she encountered new animal friends every single day, and one by one, they found their way into her art. Her art includes animals, landscapes, abstract paintings and watercolors of birds. Mandalas are a core feature of her work.
“Mandala Journeys” is a free exhibition and open to the public, Monday through Friday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., and runs through June 30. For more information, visit carnegiehallwv.org, call 304-645-7917, or visit Carnegie Hall at 611 Church Street, Lewisburg.
