Caldwell Arts Council in Lenoir, NC, Offers Works by Three Still Life Artists
With the school year starting up and the summer heat still blazing, find peace and beauty on the walls of the Caldwell Arts Council Gallery, in Lenoir, NC, with the still life exhibit, A Moment In Time, on display from Aug. 2 - 30, 2002. Three still life artists are featured in the exhibition, including: Mary Dobbin, Jayne Johnson, and Kate Worm.
Commenting on her work, Mary Dobbin says, "My desire is for my works to become a reflection of the joy I felt in studying the subjects. I like my still life paintings of fruits, flowers, and bottle to be full of life. Although focusing on stationary objects or interiors, my goal is for the painting to have energy and movement through lively lines and intense colors."
Jayne Johnson says her work involves, "Making the insignificant significant." She is influenced by 16th century Dutch and Flemish painters. Her pieces tend to evoke the feeling of finding peace in nature. Her work has been shown in such venues as the Hodges Taylor Gallery in Charlotte, NC.
Regional painter Kate Worm is most known for
her painterly realism style in still lifes and landscapes. She
studied art at UNC-G with Andrew Martin and has taken workshops
with well-known painters Wolf Kahn and Wayne Thiebaud. Her works
are in public and private collections throughout the country.
The group exhibition showcases an excellent blend of traditional and contemporary styles incorporating still life themes.
