ASHEVILLE NC – New works by Susan Lingg, an artist based in Cullowhee, North Carolina, will be on display at The North Carolina Arboretum. Opening January 24, Within and Around the Ancients will depict the unique mountain landscapes of the Southern Appalachians.
Using watercolors, poured inks, and handmade paper, Lingg portrays the unique granite exposures of the mountains of the region, as well as native flora. Described as realism through an artist’s eye, her work captures and celebrates a passing moment.
A registered artist with Handmade in America, Lingg has been exhibiting her work since 1982. She is a member of the Jackson County Visual Arts Council, the North Carolina Watercolor Society, and Dogwood Crafters. Lingg is also an instructor in watercolor and handmade paper.
The exhibit will be on display at the Education Center of the Arboretum through April 8. For more information, please call (828) 665-2492 or visit www.ncarboretum.org. The central mission of The North Carolina Arboretum, an affiliate institution of the 17-campus University of North Carolina system, is to cultivate connections between people and plants.
