An art exhibit featuring the art work of Thomas Nelson Community College student Freddie Trebby and Charles Warren, son of Thomas Nelson Community College faculty member Simone Warren, will be on display at the College’s Historic Triangle campus located at 161C John Jefferson Square in Williamsburg throughout April. An opening reception is scheduled for Thursday, April 12 at 6:00 p.m. The community is invited to attend.The exhibit, entitled, Water and Wildlife features more than 40 pieces created by Trebby and Warren using different media such as watercolor, watercolor pencils, acrylics, pastels and photography. Two of Trebby’s art pieces have been submitted to the Genesis Show, a college student-juried exhibit held annually at the Peninsula Fine Arts Center.
Trebby said, “I live on the water and love painting the water scenes and the wildlife. I am fascinated with coastal nature, its birds and love studying their movements and habits. As the light changes from early morning to sunset, I am captivated by how it plays on both the water and its surroundings. I am beginning to branch out a bit into human form relating to those same surroundings.”
Trebby is pursuing a degree in Fine Arts at Thomas Nelson Community College. Upon graduation, she will transfer to Virginia Commonwealth University. Trebby is a resident of Yorktown. Warren currently works at Sanibel Island Captiva wildlife conservation group in southwest Florida and will be attending the Veterinarian School at Virginia Tech in the fall.
The show is part of a continuing series of artist shows hosted by Simone Warren, an instructor of Fine Arts & Art History at both campuses. These art exhibits give students the opportunity to experience first hand the work they need to do to plan for an art exhibit.
