Artists League of the Sandhills in Aberdeen, NC, Features Works by Deane Billings, Caroline Love and Michelle Satterfield

Artists League of the Sandhills in Aberdeen, NC, Wet & Wild, featuring works by Deane Billings, Caroline Love and Michelle Satterfield, on view from Oct. 6 - 31, 2013. A reception will be held on Oct. 6, from 4-6pm.

The exhibit will be presented by three award winning artists from the Artists League of the Sandhills in Aberdeen. Their works will include paintings in oils, watercolors and alcohol inks.

Deane Carroll Billings, a native New Englander, was raised near the ocean in Marblehead, MA. Her art reflects her interest and love of gardens, flowers, buildings and the New England coast from Maine to Nantucket. She also has a fascination with wild and domestic animals and has been painting captivating “portraits” of giraffes, camels, bunnies and goats, to name a few. Billings “captures their appealing personalities through the wonderful expressions on their faces.”

Caroline Love is a native of North Carolina. Many of her watercolors reflect her NC heritage and capture the rural south with its weathered tobacco barns, rustic farm buildings and cotton, tobacco and hay fields. Her love of the sea inspires her realistic lighthouse and seascape paintings from Maine to the Bahamas.

“The changing landscapes in North Carolina-from the misty mountains in the west through the gently rolling sand hills, to the splendid coastline and Outer Banks in the east-are inspirational gifts for the artists who live and paint here,” says Love.

Michelle Mayeux Satterfield majored in Fine Arts at Palomar College in Southern California. Many of her paintings, both oils and watercolors, have been done “plein aire”. She has also taken inspiration from fields, flowers and farms with her to continue painting in her studio. Satterfield likes to paint people, street scenes, courtyards, flowers, buildings and different moods of the sea from sketches and photos taken on her many travels, “trying to capture the light, color and ‘feeling’ from each place“.
