Jo Dye, a well-known wildlife artist, will display a collection of wildlife collages in Now & Then…, on exhibit at Art League of Hilton Head this spring. The collection consists of depictions of wildlife alive with bright colors, excellent composition, and surprising detail. "This collection reflects my recent interest in color and texture and the freedom that collage represents."


Over the years, Dye has experimented in many media, including oils, acrylics, pastels, printmaking, scratchboard, and pen and ink. "My art is not stagnant, but always in transition." These early and recent collage works are created from cut and torn paper, some found and some created by Dye herself. Each addition to the collage is carefully chosen for its color and value.


Dye's long art career has included working as an artist for a large firm, starting a gallery, directing the Vienna Art League Gallery in Vienna, VA, and being president of the Reston Art Gallery in Reston, VA. While living in Hungary, she started an English-speaking docent group at the Budapest Museum of Fine Art.


Now & Then… runs May 14 though June 14. An opening reception will be held Wednesday, May 15, 5-7pm. Dye will also host a Gallery Walk on Thursday, May 30, 11am-12pm, where she will discuss her work, influences, and process. The exhibit, reception, and gallery walk are all free and open to the public.
