Please join us at Carolina Creations and other downtown shops for our first ArtWalk of the year! At our gallery we feature artwork depicting New Bern by gallery artists Jan Francoeur, Mike Rooney, Brenda Behr, Janet Dixon, T Rader and others. We'll have Watercolors, Oils and clay.
The show opens on Friday March 13 from 5-8 pm and runs through April 30.
We will also have a book signing during ArtWalk for Karen Dodds new book call called "Shifting Sands" which takes place near Southport, NC. Stop in and meet the author.
ArtWalk is always a lot of fun! There will be new work at Carolina Creations, the Arts Council, Art and Materials, New Bern Art Gallery and others. It's a fun evening to stroll our streets, eat dinner downtown, stop in at Carolina Creations for refreshments and to see all your friends.
The work in our show include T Rader’s oils, such as his miniature, “New Bern Skyline 2009;” Brenda Behr’s calligraphic watercolors and oils; Janet Dixon’s watercolors; and Janet Francoeur’s acrylics, watercolors, and tiles.
Each artist takes a slightly different view of New Bern. Rader is known for his views from across the river, which, at fi rst glance, appear to be very detailed—however, as you approach the painting, you see that it is an impression of the scene.
Behr floods her art with color, then with a fine brush in a calligraphic style paints in the details, giving the painting a very loose and lively interpretation.
Dixon uses strong color in paintings that depict the Christ Church fence and the Trent River waterfront.
Francoeur’s eathernware clay tiles feature the homes that will be on the Historic Home and Garden Tour in April.
