About Gina Washington

 
 
  • Biography
    As a professional artist I have a passion to create, teach and connect people to art and artists to artists. So far I have been fortunate enough to exhibit my work nationally and internationally. For the past few years I have increased my work in the stock photography market with Fotolia and I have continued to create exhibitions at home of a more experimental nature. 2015 finds me revamping my portfolio, creating more Fine Art pieces and increasing my stock online. Since the passing of my 99-year-old grandfather I not only have the need to create but a little more time. I like getting close to my subjects and focusing just on the movement of what's in front of me. My Fine Art work is more conceptual and explores the realm of fairytales and childhood sayings.

    Venue: Westmoreland Arts and Heritage Festival 2015 Westmoreland Art Nationals, Latrobe, Pennsylvannia

    Since 1978, the Westmoreland Art Nationals has attracted the best local, regional, national, and international artists.

Accepted works receive a healthy amount of exposure to thousands of exhibition patrons and to the general public through mentions in exhibition programs, the Westmoreland Arts & Heritage Festival website, social media and Festival press releases. The Westmoreland Art Nationals is presented by the Westmoreland Arts & Heritage
    Festival. The first exhibit takes place at Westmoreland County Community College in Youngwood, PA. The opening is
