The Stokes County Arts Council is featuring the artwork of Kitty Ray Brown at The Apple Gallery in Danbury, N.C. Her exhibit, on display throughout October, features Impressionist Landscape Paintings, Oils and Archival Photography.
Brown worked in the Art Department at Pembroke University and spent decades designing fine jewelry using precious stones and metals. After retirement, she became a professional photographer, taught by Jesse Moore. More recently, Brown has studied Impressionist Landscape Art under Craig Richards.
She has won several awards from contests sponsored by the Spencer-Penn Centre in Virginia and has had her flower photographs made into woven tapestries for hotels and resorts around the world.
“I have owned and used a camera since my early teens. I carry it constantly and make pictures every day. Now that I create Impressionist Landscape Paintings, I use my photographs as inspiration,” said Brown.
An Artist Reception and Meet and Greet will be held on Friday, Oct. 19 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the Apple Gallery located at 500 Main Street, Danbury. Reception is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Stokes Arts at 336-593-8159.
