Signal Mountain artist Carolyn Wright will be featured at Gallery 5 at the MACC starting Friday, Sept. 12 with a public reception from 5-7 p.m. The exhibit runs through Friday, Oct. 17.
Her work is in the collections of Memorial Hospital, Baylor School, UTC, as well as portraits in the offices of prominent citizens.
“I get a thrill out of using color," says Ms. Wright with a great smile on her face. "I want people to experience happiness when they see my work."
She has taught watercolor, oil, and pastel techniques at Chattanooga State, the Hunter Museum, and Chattanooga Christian School and led workshops in Aiken, S.C. and Cohutta Lodge in Georgia. She has been honored with many prizes in various media from a long list of art associations.
Ms. Wright holds a BFA from the University of AL, studied at the Harris School in Nashville, and studied under a royal portrait artist for British Royalty.
The “Plants, Patterns, and Portraits” exhibit includes artwork that reflects her delightful and warm personality and brings happiness to us all. Artwork of her late husband, Jim Wright, will also be on exhibit.
Gallery 5 is open during MACC hours, Monday-Thursday from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. and Friday from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. For more information contact the Mountain Arts Community Center, at 809 Kentucky Ave., Signal Mountain, call 886-1959 or visit signalmacc.org.
