The Parks & Recreation Department is bringing more art to North Myrtle Beach. Artists Everywhere is a monthly art display at City Hall to showcase our local artist’s talent and provide beautiful public displays for our residents and visitors. We are working hard to put together a great line up of local artists varying from painters, to sculptors, to potters, and much more.
The Parks & Recreation Department is proud to present the art created by:
Christa Weeks is a self-taught artist who found her love of painting within the last few years. She grew up in an artistic family, her father and step-mother, both artists raised her and she spent a great deal of her childhood with her grandmother who was a blue ribbon craft winner for many years. Christa’s two younger brothers are both artists, as well as her younger sister who is a trained French Chef and restaurant owner, crafting the beauty & flavors of food. Creativity runs deep in this family! Although she is a native of Virginia, she recently moved back to South Carolina along with her husband and two daughters, and they are all loving life by the ocean in North Myrtle Beach. Christa enjoys painting in both oil and acrylic, she enjoys exploring new techniques, styles and mediums. She paints whenever possible in her home studio and would love nothing more than to be an artist full-time. She is a member of the Waccamaw Arts and Crafts Guild and is always searching for new ways to become more involved in the arts. She was a participant representing the guild in the 2017 Myrtle Beach Home Improvement Show, participated in the 2017 Annual Fall Members Show, as well as the most recent show, judged by Artist Douglas Balantine, which was displayed at The Burroughs-Chapin Art Museum in Myrtle Beach from May through June 2018. In the last several months she has had various artworks displayed at The Confident Rabbit, in Fredericksburg, VA and currently a new series is being shown. In August of 2017 she was invited to be a part of the First Friday Myrtle Beach Art Walk where she showcased her abstract fluid artwork at Element Gallery in downtown Myrtle Beach, she plans to be a regular part of this yearly event. Her love and knowledge of painting continues to grow and she hopes to build more name recognition and opportunities in the area. Christa has many one of a kind original artworks for sale and is also available for new art commissions.
