Tryon Painters and Sculptors Hosts Plein-Air Painter

Tryon Painters and Sculptors will host an exhibit by Linda Cheek, a Plein-Air painter from Marshall, NC through Jan. 29.

Cheek, a graduate of the Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, FL, is an accomplished illustrator as well as a fine artist with several awards, books, and exhibitions to her credit. Her work is on display in the Salmagundi Club in New York City, on Governor's Island in New York, and at the Lockheed Corporation. She is a member of the Society of Illustrators, the Pastel Society. A Coast Guard Artist and a member of the Seven Artist Alliance in Asheville, Cheek's work has also been released in print editions.

Cheek's studio is located in the western NC mountains; set in the beauty of untamed nature. This allows her to create much of her work "on-the-spot." She says: "For me one of the greatest joys of landscape painting is to spend time out-of-doors. I prefer to paint directly from nature in order to realize one of my goals; to paint landscapes that honor nature with an openness and spontaneity."
