About the artists

Barbara Bear Jamison is a 4th generation Wilmingtonian. Her award winning works reflect her love of the coastal regions where she has lived and traveled. The scenes include people, boats and nature saturated with the beautiful light and color of the areas she paints.

Jenny McKinnon Wright is intrigued by light as it affects nature in a particular moment. To capture that emotion and connect with the viewer is the goal. It’s the effect of light on color that fascinates her. A constant student, Wright delights in the journey of pushing oil paint around to build forms using luscious combinations and varied techniques. She leaves it to the viewer to imagine stories about the place that caught her eye.

Exhibition Date: Wednesday, October 21, 2020 - Saturday, January 16, 2021
