MINT HILL – Mint Hill Arts has opened a new exhibit that showcases two artists with strikingly different approaches to their work at the Mint Hill Town Hall gallery.
“Different Strokes” features the work of Rebecca McDuffie and Susie Conrad.
McDuffie began her art career in various mediums but has been working in watercolor since 2006. She has studied with nationally recognized watercolor artists, including Joe Miller, Ted Nuttall, Don Andrews and Iain Stewart. She paints a variety of subjects such as cityscapes and portraits. Figurative subjects are her favorite because they tell a story.
Although most of Conrad’s focus has been on realism and portraiture, her work in recent years has gravitated toward abstract techniques. This new style results in a spontaneous outcome that mimics organic shapes and movement found in nature.
Town hall operates from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays at 4430 Mint Hill Village Lane.
