Meet the artists for the Paint Around

What is a "Paint Around" anyway? It can vary. Our five artists will paint under a tent on the lawn outside of the gallery. It is part musical chairs, part game show! Each artist will have 30 minutes to work on their painting before they have to switch canvases. Each painting will be painted from a different perspective. The results will be exciting to see.

We have five talented gallery artists involved this year. Below are examples of each artist's work and a little information on the diverse painting styles of these painters. I can't wait to see what they come up with!!

Nancy Noel May

Working in acrylics, award winning artist, Nancy Noel May, is constantly seeking the clear, vibrant colors and a strong source of light that are the prime elements of her work. A defined sense of place is of vital importance in creating a successful painting.

Nancy has collectors within United States and abroad.

Phil Meade

An oil painter and avid plein air painter, Phil loves painting the coastal light. His impressionistic paintings make you feel the atmosphere as if you were standing right there. Phil is represented in many fine galleries and has a following of loyal collectors.

Ann Hair

Ann Hair is a graduate of Daemen College in Buffalo, NY, with a Bachelor of Science in Art Education. Since 1998, she has been teaching art in the Wake County, NC elementary school system. Ann's work has been shown both locally and nationally. She has had her work juried into many shows and has received several awards. Recent work has been with palette knife using wonderful broad strokes and thick with paint.

Kristin Gibson

Finding seemingly endless inspiration in the organic shapes and hues of fruits, flowers and vegetables, Kristin's works begin as drawings with her paintbrush. With bold immediacy and working entirely from life, lines in a layer of paint jump-start a fluent process of color into color, wet paint into wet paint. Kristin is an artist not afraid of painting intuitively to get a spontaneous energetic look that is inescapable. Kristin's paintings hang in many fine art galleries. This artist is very active in her community and holds frequent demonstrations at her representing galleries and elsewhere. She is also active in participating in charitable events.

Jane Faudree

Predominantly painting in oil, Jane enjoys plein air painting to catch that freshness that only painting outside allows. An award winning artist, Jane's work has been consistently accepted in local and national exhibits and hangs in corporate and private collections throughout the U.S. and in Europe. Locally, Jane's oil painting, "As the River Flows" was used to make the poster used for the Pink Ribbon events in Wilmington this year.
