ASHEVILLE, N.C. – Noted abstraction fine artist Cindy Walton announces the opening of her studio to the public in the Wedge Building, located in the River Arts District. She joins fellow artists and studio mates Bee Sieburg, Chris Dismukes, and Lisa Overreuter beginning May 5.
“The River Arts District has always been a special place to me as an artist,” says Walton. “It is a place where I visit friends, share ideas, rejuvenate, and walk my dog, Cleo. By being in the district, I can offer my expertise as a working artist to individual artists, artist business owners, and to the RAD organization.”
Walton remains a nationally sought-after artist and instructor.  She teaches “Abstraction and Cold Wax Techniques,” May 14-20, at the prestigious Ghost
Ranch, N.M., where emerging artists from across the U.S. will explore the
diversity of the cold wax medium under her tutelage. “One of the best parts of where I am in my career is being able to encourage  and support artists at different places in their own careers,” she says.
About the Artist
Selected work from Walton’s signature, color-driven Landscape series compared favorably to mid-20th century Colorist Hans Hoffman in a 2011 exhibit at Asheville Museum of Art.
Now, working predominantly in the Cold-Wax medium, her current “Horizon Lines” series creates elegant, subtle palettes layered to create intricate jewel-like canvas treasures. In fact, her mastery of versatility in medium and mood captured the attention of regional art enthusiasts in 2010 with her introduction of the cold wax medium – consisting of a beeswax paste mixed with oil paints for a matte, layered texture – into her repertoire. The result has generated a furor of interest among discerning collectors and experts in the U.S. and abroad. Recently accepted to the juried National Association of Women Artists, Walton enjoys emerging prestige as an artist with increasing significance in the national arena.
With her growing reputation as a significant artist to watch, and an awe-inspiring mastery of technique and style, the demand for Walton’s works has increased, and her workshops for professional artists have sold out repeatedly. For Walton, being an artist isn’t something she does, it’s who she is: bright, decisive, present, emotive, evocative, intelligent and saturated with complexity. “I’m simply happy to be able to do something I love, and share it with others who find beauty and meaning in the work,” she says. “Fine art is meant to be enjoyed. For someone to choose to live with one of my paintings is the highest praise of all.”
