May 1, 2018 - July 31, 2018
Orlando Public Library, 1st Floor
Artist Chelsea Smith grew up living between Casselberry Florida and staying summers in Nottingham England and Derry Northern Ireland. Connecting with her Irish and English heritage inspired her artwork and determination to work exclusively with etched copper plates using only renaissance era tools and techniques.
Chelsea has accumulated an impressive number of nationally rated fine art show juried awards, selected to be the poster artist for several festivals, currently retailing original artwork within Universal Studios Orlando. She has been inducted by the National Association of Women Artists. She is a featured artist within the Bowersock Gallery in Provincetown Cape Cod and continues to increase her gallery presence.
On display in this solo show are pieces from Chelsea's two ongoing series, Sacred Feminine and Celtic Mythology. The latter series explores the stories of the Irish epic Táin Bó Cúailnge and also Scottish, Welsh & Nordic animal symbology of ancient civilizations and folklores.
