This month, PEGASUS Gallery at The Golden Pony will showcase the work of April Sedeen.

April Sedeen is an East Coast artist who lives and works in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. April’s interest in the arts started early in life. By age eleven, she had an apprenticeship at The Art League School in Alexandria, Va. She excelled in her classes and at age twelve, went on to earn an apprenticeship at the Corcoran School of Art and Design in Washington, DC. In her sixteenth year, April found her artistic home at The Yellow Barn Studio. It was there she advanced and was given a scholarship to study. April has been a career artist for over 15 years. She continues to try new mediums and techniques.

As a painter, I use the mediums of oil, acrylic, and mixed media to create imagery that frees the communication between everyday life and the fantastic. At times this work is large-scale, close-up portraits with metal foils, at others, moments frozen in time, like boats sailing in troubled waters. I use my artwork to tell stories, expressing the way I perceive the world around me. I hope to create an intense relationship with the viewer, one that is complex and long lasting.
