RIVERHEAD, N.Y., Aug. 8, 2014 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Fine artist Cindy Walton joins an elite selection group of artists in the 3rd National Juried East End Arts Exhibit, "The Creative Process." The Gallery show opens today and runs through Sept. 28, 2014.

An Asheville, N.C., abstractionist, Walton received an honorable mention for her painting, "Spill." Additionally, "Golden Reflection," was chosen for the Gallery show. Inspired by the inner landscape's relationship with the natural world, the works were rendered in mixed media/oil cold wax on board.

Guest jurors were Gerald Peters, owner of Gerald Peters Gallery in New York and Santa Fe, N.M., and Peter Marcelle, director of the Peters New York Gallery and owner of The Peter Marcelle Project, Southampton, N.Y.

Walton's deftly layered color-driven paintings are characterized by emotion, movement and light, with a unique artistic voice marking her as emergent artist of significance in the national and international arenas. In a 2011 Asheville Museum of Art exhibit, her compared favorably with that of renowned colorist Hans Hoffmann.

The cold wax medium consists of a beeswax paste mixed with oil paints for a matte, layered texture. Walton's mastery of the cold wax technique and proficiency as an instructor is well-known. Professional artists from across the United States flock to her workshops in Asheville and at the prestigious Ghost Ranch, N.M., where she has been an artist-in-residence since 2012.

In June, Walton's "Bridge of Dreams" established firmly as a winner in the Manhattan Arts International Show, "Celebrate the Healing Power of Art." That show was juried primarily by Lilly Wei, an independent curator and art critic for Art in America and ARTnews, among other publications. This spring, Walton was also the recipient of two additional international award recognitions in the annual "All Woman Art Competition", by the online Light Space and Time gallery, taking fifth place in the painting category, and eighth place overall.

Since 2011, Walton remains a member of the juried National Association of Women Artists and a fellow in the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, with support from the Karen Shea Silverman Foundation Endowment, at the Creative Retreat, Mount San Angelo, Amherst, Va., since 2006.

The 3rd National Juried East End Art Exhibit will opens today (Aug. 8) in the Gallery with a "Meet the Artists" reception from 5-7 p.m., which is free and open to the public. A special wine tasting event, with three tastings for $5 donation, coincides with the artists' reception and continues until 9 p.m. in the East End Arts Carriage House located behind the gallery. The show runs through September 24, 2014.

East End Gallery is at 133 East Main Street, Riverhead, NY 11901, and online at
