The Art League of Cheatham County: October featured Artists and exhibitions.

1Heather Wolfe

Featured at Sycamore Square Gov’t Center lobby for the month of October. She uses a classic black and white pallet and other elements to create a unity between organic shape, texture, and space with various elements produced by human design. As a daughter of an artist, Heather was exposed to fine art at an early age creating a lifelong passion for the arts. She received her education in fine and digital arts from Austin Peay State University’s College of Art and Design. Wolfe’s primary focus across all of her pieces is to evoke an emotional response from the viewer. While her various works cover several mediums, Wolfe’s first love is charcoal and the tactile nature of manipulating the medium.

2Lesley Floyd

Lesley is the October featured artist at Flytes Brewhouse in Pleasant View Village. Lesley is an attorney in Springfield who has a passion for art. She began her artistic journey with pencil and charcoal portraits before transitioning to a more colorful world based in acrylic and digital paint.

3Teresa Griffin

Teresa is the October featured artist at The Coach House in Pleasant View. Teresa has been painting for over 30 years, using all mediums and foundations, and is best known for her gallery paintings.

4Carla-Christina Contreras

From eleven to sixteen she worked on the TV series ‘The Waltons”. She is the author of Clint the Black Cat®, a children’s book and created a curriculum for K- 4th grade in Nashville so students could create the drawings for her book to help fundraise for the arts in elementary schools in Middle Tennessee.
