Arts Council of Wilson in Wilson, NC, Features Works by Brenda Behr

The Arts Council of Wilson in Wilson, NC, will present an exhibit of works by Brenda Behr, on view from May 5 through June 18, 2011.

Behr’s representational paintings combine her eye for detail with a heart that captures the essence of her subject. Since embarking on a painting career in 2003, she has sold her work in galleries and art centers throughout North Carolina. Behr paints much of her work on location, considering en plein air painting to be the most challenging and evocative way to paint. Seldom without her sketchbooks and paints, her good nature and innate interest in people make her a fun artist to follow.

Behr has a MFA in Adverting Design from Syracuse University and a BFA in Communication Arts, Virginia Commonwealth University. Her career highlights include being a signature member, as well as former board member, of the Watercolor Society of North Carolina. She is the recipient of numerous awards for both her oils and watercolors and has received several commissions by the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. She has been a featured artist in Our State magazine and in the book, Painting North Carolina, and is a 2009-2010 NC Regional Artist Project Grant Recipient.
