We want to give congratulations to the most recent TAP Gallery Themed Show winner: Lisa Alberghini!
The theme of this show was Transitions.
Lisa said about her 10 x 20 watercolor on canvas:
"When I thought about the word transition, the first thing that came to mind was how a butterfly starts out as a caterpillar...cute, but not really all that pretty. It then knows to spin a cocoon around itself and transforms into the most beautiful creature...a butterfly! It looks nothing like the caterpillar did and it has always amazed me how that transition happens."
This piece is priced at $95.
A reminder to our members:
Each month, we hold a new themed contest in the TAP Gallery. All CCAL members are invited to participate. A monthly Best in Show will be selected and awarded a ribbon. Happy creating!

About the Artist
I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. I started drawing when I was a little girl and never stopped. My mother was an artist and I used to watch her draw and paint and was mesmerized by the beautiful drawings and paintings she created and I wanted to be like her. I would draw on any scrap piece of paper I could find as a child, and I still have some of those drawings I did as a child. My love for art has grown over the years. I started out with charcoal, pencil and chalk and then started painting with oils. My mother and I would take an art class here and there at the local community college and that’s where my love for watercolors began. As a child I loved the stained glass windows in our church. The colors were so beautiful when the sun shone through them. I knew one day I would learn to make them and I have become an accomplished stained glass artisan. I love to stay busy and I have to be creating something all the time. I started doing pebble art and vintage jewelry art in the last couple of years. I am also a muralist. Having a wall as a canvas is so much fun because you have so much space to work with. I love making jewelry from mother nature’s beauty…sea shells, rocks and gem stones. I don’t make jewelry you’re going to see just anywhere. Every piece is unique and one of a kind. I chose the name Eclecticity for my company because I think it pretty much says who I am. I’m very eclectic and my artwork is the same. Member: South Carolina Artists (SCA) Crooked Creek Art League (CCAL)
