Artist Highlight- Veronica Funk

It's been 5 years now since the inception of Inner Works, an altered book round robin collaborative of six artists. The original group consisted of Supria Karmakar, Seth Apter, Veronica Funk, Jill Zaheer, Roxanne Evans-Stout, and myself. It's very exciting to see how each artist has grown, and to follow their accomplishments in their fields. I thought it would be fun to highlight each artist here and I'm starting with Veronica.

I am so excited to see the direction that Veronica has gone in her painting. She just finished up a community arts project where she painted a utility box.

"Funk's newest undertaking will give Airdrie residents and visitors the opportunity to view her work.  On Sept. 4, Funk, who was one of the founders of the AIRdirondack project and a former Creative Airdrie board member, will begin painting the City-owned utility box on the corner of First Ave. and Main Street.  The piece will be painted in her colourful new style with animal and arrowheads depicted, as well as images referencing Nose Creek."

Veronica continues to exhibit in solo and group exhibitions and her work has been published in numerous magazines, books and publications. I've just given a very brief introduction to Veronica's beautiful art. Please visit her website to view all her beautiful work. You can also see her utility box transformation in full here on journal here.
