Rhian Swain is a painter, photographer, illustrator, and writer who grew up all over the world. Currently serving as the Arts Council’s Board President, she is best known for her Arts in the Heart artwork, used to promote the festival over the past 24 years. In 2023 she was inducted into the National Association of Women Artists and received an NEA grant to create an exhibit: “Breaking the Barriers: Women Who Impacted the Arts”. The owner of RedWolf Advertising, Rhian has been exhibiting and selling artwork regularly for 40 years. In Fall of 2024 she is curating an exhibit at the Jessye Norman School of the Arts and the Laney Museum of Black History.

Yuliia Wilson, originally from Ukraine, moved to Augusta years ago for her family. She has a master’s degree in art from Culture and Art University in Kyiv. Having been a painter since birth, she has enjoyed working with a variety of materials and techniques. Her preferred style is working with mixed media. She enjoys doing murals with paint and plaster because of the freedom of space and not being confined to a frame. Her art is a continuation of her feelings and thoughts. Recently, her work has taken on a minimalist aesthetic with white panels, textures, and pastel colors.  Presently, she works as a floral and event designer, creating art when she has the time and inspiration. She can’t imagine life without being creative and says the process of creating makes her happy.

Opening Reception: May 7th || 5 – 7 p.m.
