|Pinehurst # 2 Second Hole, Paul S. Brown|
I learned of this show from a friend Carmen Gordon at Oak Hollow Studios in Carthage, North Carolina. I had attended workshops at her studio.
My first workshop at Oak Hollow Studio was a surprise. All of the attendees, including the model, had studied with or taught at the Academy of Classical Design with D. Jeffrey Mims. Also most were ongoing students of Paul Brown.
Paul Brown was raised in North Carolina but has lived and worked in London since 1994. Currently, he lives and paints in North Carolina. Paul makes his own oil paints with carefully selected pigments and uses old master techniques and mediums working from life.
Paul studied and apprenticed with Jeffrey Mims, and the Studio Cecil- Graves in Florence Italy. He has traveled extensively, painting his way through museums in England and Europe. Paul helped Daniel Graves open the Florence Academy of Art. Paul has also exhibited in the BP Portrait Award.
Carmen Drake Gordon owns Oak Hollow studios in Carthage North Carolina and attended the Academy of Classical Design, first as a student then as a student teacher. Carmen has most recently studied under the direction of Paul Brown.
Olena Babak a classically trained artist originally from the Ukraine currently lives in Maine. Olena has a studio art degree from the Kharkiv College of fine art and also studied with and was an assistant teacher at the Academy of Classical Design. She teaches ongoing workshops at Olena Babak Studios.
Kamille Corry a realist painter who currently resides in Salt Lake City, Utah. She studied primarily at the Cecil-Graves studio in Florence Italy and studied extensively with Jeffrey Mims. In 2002, she started an art academy for intensive studies in the figurative arts.
Joann Kilpatrick lives in the Southern Pines, Pinehurst, NC area and attended the Academy of Classical Design. She studies with Paul Brown at the Oak Hollow Studios.
Frank Strazzulla lives in Boston Massachusetts area. A new England painter graduated from Massachusetts College of Art, he attended the Studio Cecil-Graves in Florence.
Elizabeth Leary Strazzulla paints poetic and precise landscapes and still lifes. Her eye is uniquely developed to see both the architectural and spiritual essence of her subjects and to find in them beauty, peace, and harmony.
The Ann Long Gallery in Charleston represents the following artists: Paul S. Brown, Kamille Cory, Jill Hooper, Frank Strazzulla, Carmen Drake Gordon, Elizabeth Leary Strazzulla and Jeffrey Mims
