Arts United for Davidson County in Lexington, NC, Features Works by Raymond Reid
Arts United for Davidson County in Lexington, NC, will present the exhibition, Faces and Places, featuring works by Raymond Reid, on view from Aug. 1 - 30, 2006.
Reid is a professional portrait and landscape artist who splits time between homes and studios in Kernersville and Pinehurst, NC. His dramatic depictions of people and places have found steady acceptance and numerous awards in scores of regional, national and international juried competitions. In 2001 Reid's Twelve Disciples won the Special Judges Award in the International Spiritual Art IV competition in Omaha, NE. In 2005 he took Best of Show in the 4th Annual International Art of Golf Festival in Southern Pines. Reid has had 18 one-man shows and his original paintings and reproductions are in private and corporate collections across America and in several foreign countries including Australia, Russia and Great Britain.
Over the years Reid has mastered the extremely difficult art of portrait painting in watercolor, and translated his techniques into a dynamic teaching system. Word has spread and his watercolor portrait workshops are in great demand, often with waiting lists.
Reid's oil portrait
painting technique is no less impressive, having garnered him
membership and Certified Instructor status at the Portrait Institute of New York. He also is a member of the Artists League of the Sandhills, the High Point Fine Arts Guild, Arts United of Davidson County, Watercolor Society of North Carolina and Exhibiting Member of the Associated Artists of Winston-Salem, where he is a past president. He is also a past president of the Wilkes Art Guild.
