   ARTISTS LEAGUE of the    SANDHILLS

Our art library is like nothing in the county.  Hundreds of books with art information and instruction.

Coming in June:

  Adventures with a Palette Knife
  Artists League of the Sandhills
      Kathy Leuck Exhibition 
         Opening Reception 
      Friday, May 7, 5:00:7:00





This exhibit will feature many pieces created during the sequestered time period last year. Her newer work is done in oil paint in the “Alla Prima” style and exhibits some of the creative textures for which her work is known. The exhibit will hang through Thursday, May 27.

Being a social person by nature, the isolation of the pandemic was a frustrating time. She took up the palette knife instead of the brush, which she found freed her to be more expressive and looser in her rendering. In October, she had a much-publicized exhibit and sale for charity of many works created over the year. She was thrilled that the exhibit was well supported by the community and benefited 4 not-for-profit organizations. More of Leuck’s work is on exhibit at One of a Kind Gallery, in the theater building in Pinehurst; The Women’s Exchange and the Campbell House Gallery. 

Also on exhibit is Leuck’s interpretation of Adele Bloch-Bauer, known as Adele Bloch-Bauer: “Portrait of the Woman in Gold”. She took up the creation and interpretation of the work after being challenged by artist friends to do so. Many patrons know her art because of her multi-media and experimental approach. The original piece was created by Gustav Klimt in 1907 and has had a life of its own. Klimt, a Viennese artist, painted the 22-year-old Adele over a period of 3 years; the background exhibited a cacophony of glittering and erotic symbols of triangles, eyes, and eggs rendered in real gold leaf. Many critics criticized Klimt for his style, but history has made the piece iconic. The painter was influenced by Egyptian, Arabic, and Oriental art and the painting was considered an Art Nouveau masterpiece. The painting now resides in the Neue Galerie in NYC.
