All Creatures Great and Small

Kim Williams

The Bottle Works is glad to present “All Creatures Great and Small” by Kim Williams!

The exhibit will be on display in our Main Gallery from March 6 – April 24. What better artist to spotlight during our annual NatureWorks Event, than Kim Williams. NatureWorks will be a virtual event this year on Facebook Live, on March 6 from 9 AM – 2 PM.

Artist’s Statement:

“I love the spiritual aspect of nature and honor the essence of holiness in my subjects. When pure inspiration strikes, I find myself imagining how a finished piece will develop … what ephemera may be added or technique used to convey a particular emotion or message. Even though my art is stylistically realistic, I always allow room for that particular inspiration to speak in the finished piece. With my work I strive to bring joy, honesty and a peaceful experience to the viewer as well as honor the Creator whose inspiration for me is boundless and never-ending.”

About Kimberly Williams

Kimberly Williams, a lifelong Western Pennsylvanian, discovered her love for art at a young age. Her father saw that she has a natural ability and sought to find formal instruction for this young creative. She began taking art classes from a community art teacher.  Her love for art lead her to earn a degree from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh. As an art professional, Ms. Kim worked at the Tribune Democrat/ Johnstown Magazine as the Design Editor.  During her 33-year career, she created advertisements and designed books published by the Tribune Democrat. Books she designed include Homelands, Domes and Spires, Heroes Were Made, and Slap Shots and Snapshots.

In 2015, Ms. Kim decided to fully pursue her art career. She is the proud business owner of 365 Inspired Art, which features nature-themed artwork. She has also showcased her work in various exhibitions at the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art in Altoona, Pennsylvania and the Bottle Works Ethnic Arts Center in Johnstown, Pennsylvania.  Check out Kim Williams artwork at her Website: www.kimwilliamsfineart.com.
