ARTISTS LEAGUE of the SANDHILLS
The Artists League’s top priority is the safety of our members, students, instructors and visitors. In order to ensure the highest level of safety and to comply with the governor’s mandate, we have instituted the following measures:
When visiting the League, masks are encouraged at all times. Social distancing should be practiced, maintaining a distance of at least 6 feet between others, however, when social distance is not possible (as in one-on-one or small group conversations) masks should be worn. For our opening exhibit events, masks will be worn, social distancing will be implemented using arrows on the floor, and individually wrapped treat bags will be distributed.
For our classes, class size will be limited to allow for social distancing. Seating will be staggered to allow a minimum of 6 feet between all participants. Social distancing and wearing of masks will be encouraged at all times, but whenever a one-on-one conversation between individuals takes place without social distancing, face coverings must be worn. Hand sanitizer and masks are available. Tables and other surfaces will be sanitized and/or table coverings changed prior to and after each class. Anyone exhibiting fever or other signs of illness is asked to stay at home.

Linda Nunez and Paula Spinner
Opening Reception – October 2, 5:00-7:00
Join the Artists League of the Sandhills for a two person show in October. Linda Nunez and Paula Spinner have a surprise! They have merged their talents as artists to produce two separate but collaborative works of art. Upon entering the gallery, your attention will be drawn to their large canvases that merge into a continuous image.
Linda "Caro" Nuñez is an artist residing in North Carolina, where she is an accomplished painter and designer of distinctive and custom-order jewelry. She sources exotic stones and materials from around the world and pairs them with quality components made in the U.S.A. She uses various mediums when creating her pieces. She has been teaching and making art across the country and around the world since 1998. Born in the Dominican Republic, she immigrated to the United States with her family as a young child where she grew up in the city of Lynn, Massachusetts and remains a loyal fan of the Boston Red Sox to this day! She briefly studied architecture at Wentworth Institute before discovering her passion for art and education. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Art Therapy and Education from Emmanuel College, and a master's degree in Art Teaching from the University of North Carolina. She is bilingual in English and Spanish and a committed student of the Arabic language.
Paula is a native North Carolinian. Before moving to Pinehurst, she lived in Maryland for 35 years and started her career as a technical illustrator for a NASA contractor. Paula has a Master’s degree in Management Information Systems and spent the last decade of her career performing cyber security risk assessments for Computer Sciences Corporation. In 2017, Paula retired and resumed her love of art. She paints in oil and acrylic. Paula enjoys classes and learning from the League’s instructors and visiting artists. Paula lives in Pinehurst with her husband Mike.
