Coloring Outside the Lines
Opening Reception
Friday, October 1, 2021, 5:00-7:00 

​The Artist League of the Sandhills will feature the works of Linda Drott and Lynn Goldhammer beginning October 1st and continuing through October 27. Please join us for an exhibit of fun and colorful art! This exhibit will feature work that explores a playfulness of coloring in and outside the lines.

Linda has a degree in Fine Arts from Pratt Institute and a Masters in Art Education from New York University. She spent 3 decades teaching art to grades K-12 in Yonkers, New York, as well as teaching pottery to adults. She moved to the Sandhills in 1998 and she and her husband Don live on Black Hawk Farm in Vass, surrounded by cattle and horses. Her love of animals shows in her choice of art subjects. Linda’s art style is evolving from realism to impressionistic and abstract.

After retiring from the Coast Guard in 2007, Lynn started dabbling in art classes. After a few years of block printing, she has moved on to mostly oil painting and some watercolor with ink. Bright colors and the movement of lines are a key component of her work
Coming in September:

Species...From The Minds of 
Sanderson and Conrad

Opening Reception
Friday, September 3 - 5:00-7:00

This exhibit includes the works of Artists League members Brandon Sanderson and Daniel Conrad. Their show will feature paintings of animals and will capture the exciting and different styles of both artists. Because of their love for animals, the artists are donating 10% of their commissions to the Moore County Humane Society. The Exhibit is open through September 23.

The Arts have been in Daniel Conrad’s family for generations whether in music, photography, or fine art. His fine art background was developed by formal education, mentorships and self-instruction. Dan’s process is creating a composition, visualizing a story while adding elements to frame the story. Then, with the use of color, texture, light, and brush strokes his story comes to life! Much of his work is representational, however, some pieces have been anthropomorphic, (giving human qualities to non-human things). He works with oil on canvas, watercolor, & colored pencil.

Entering his 20th year as a professor and 26th as an artist, Brandon Sanderson is a Professor of Art teaching Printmaking and Drawing at the University of North Carolina-Pembroke. For as long as he can remember, Brandon’s art work has been based on the interaction of mechanical and organic parts within himself and in the world around him. Having artificial parts such as pins in a knee and re-constructed inner ears, he found, and still finds, the tool, the android, the automaton to be an appropriate symbol of our capacity for alienation, devastation and simultaneously growth and creation. Recently that work has grown to focus on his life-long hearing disability and the effect it has on his life experiences. Brandon says, “It is a situation of attempting to find comfort in discomfort, of accepting what I cannot change, changing what I can and simply pushing through.”  

Stop in and visit our 34 studios and enjoy the opportunity to talk with artists at work.  While you are here, stroll through the studio area and view the hundreds of paintings in all mediums.  The Artists League has the largest selection of artwork in the Sandhills!!!
