Coming in April
It’s a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood
Friday, April 7, 5:00 – 7:00
The April exhibit will display the work of Courtney Herndon, Mary O’Malley and Jennifer Walker. This show features paintings of their favorite subjects from the Sandhills area, as well as landscapes from their travels and homes in other states. The show continues through Saturday, April 29.
Courtney Herndon has a passion for painting landscapes. She paints in oils and with more emotion and feeling than technical structure. Be it the countryside, gardens, or water, she shares her love of the land with an impressionistic style. A past president and current instructor at the Artists League, Courtney has displayed in many solo and group exhibits. She is always happy to talk with visitors, students, collectors and others who enjoy art or painting. Courtney's artwork may be found in Studio #4.
Mary O’Malley graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a degree in art education, but didn't start painting until the 1960's. She took lessons from a friend, learning the basics of composition, color and most important, keeping soft edges. She has continued to learn over the years, taking classes from wonderful instructors and spending hours painting and experimenting on her own. Mary has a studio at the Artist's League and enjoys the company of many friends while painting there. She feels she has been blessed with this talent so, in thanks, donates much of the money she earns to charity.
Jennifer Walker has been an ICU and ER nurse for the past 15 years. A painter and biology lover her whole life, she graduated from Ohio State University with a BS in Medical Illustration, and spent several years illustrating surgical atlases for Children’s Hospital in Cincinnati. After leaving to raise four daughters and pursue organic farming and rare breeds conservation, she also graduated from nursing school and became a critical care nurse. An enthusiast of small towns and diners, and an unabashed fan of Norman Rockwell and Andy Griffith, Jennifer has spent much of her adult life seeking Mayberry, and fell in love with Pinehurst ten years ago, when her partner first brought her here and took her to breakfast at the racetrack. Her work features things she loves around Moore County: sunrises at the reservoir, spring flowers at CCNC, little diners, horses, cottages, fruit orchards, farmers’ markets and friendly people.
