Two Artistic Journey’s
October 5 - 25
Featuring the art of Laureen Kirk and Beth Ybarra
Opening Reception Friday, October 5, 5:00-7:00
Laureen Kirk likes a variety of subject matter and works in several art mediums. Her subject matter includes still life, people, and the beauty found in nature. She paints everyday things around her and is constantly looking for subjects of interest that combine her strong sense of color, light, and value contrast. The act of drawing, mark making, and quality of line is her first love. She also works in oil, acrylic, watercolor and printmaking. Laureen strives to achieve a feeling of freshness and energy in her works.
Laureen earned a degree in art education from Appalachian State University and a master's degree from UNCG. She taught as an art educator for 31 years. She maintains a studio in the Artist's League of the Sandhills and a studio at her home in Aberdeen.
Beth Ybarra is an award winning acrylic painter who won her first painting award at age 9. A love of art and design lead her to earn degrees in graphic design and interior design. After careers in both, she chose to paint with renewed interest. Beth’s paintings are depictions of the color, shape and light of momentary sights. She also maintains a studio in the Artist's League of the Sandhills.
