Artists League of the Sandhills in Aberdeen, NC, Features Works by Debby Kline and Janet Garber

The Artists League of the Sandhills in Aberdeen, NC, will present the exhibit, Something for Everyone, featuring works by Debby Kline and Janet Garber, on view at the Exchange Street Gallery, from Feb. 3 through Mar. 17, 2012. A reception will be held on Feb. 3, from 4-6pm.

Debby Kline worked for 15 years as an accountant before changing paths, going back to college to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts. In the 90’s she worked in her Cincinnati studio with traditional representational paintings in acrylic, then essentially stepped away from art to her family and grandchildren.

Shortly after moving to Pinehurst, NC, in 2009, she joined the Artists League of the Sandhills and renewed her interest in art. “But”, said Kline, “I really wasn’t interested in going the traditional route again. What I find interesting is working with new materials.”

That interest evolved into her current works - “paper paintings” - which are featured in this show. These works incorporate colored paper pulp and threads to create fragile paintings, which are then mounted on board. The results are colorful, textured works – some abstract, others almost impressionist.

Janet Garber, a veterinarian, spent her career in biomedical research before moving to the Sandhills in 2001. Semi-retirement offered time to rekindle her interest in art.

A member of the Artists League since 2005, Garber began painting animals in watercolor. She has since explored other subjects and other media, including acrylic, pastel, and colored pencil.

This exhibit will feature a variety of styles – watercolor flowers, both bold and loose; fine pencil drawings; and soft pastels.
