The North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences’ Nature Art Gallery presents “Wildlife Art,” paintings and artwork by Pinehurst resident and lifelong artist Betty Hendrix.
The show runs Oct. 5–28, with a Gallery reception Saturday, Oct. 6, 2–4 p.m. All exhibited art is for sale.
Hendrix’ main mediums are colored pencil and pastel, but she also enjoys watercolor, ink drawing and scratchboard. She is also a founding member of the Artists League of the Sandhills in Aberdeen, N.C., and teaches pastel, colored pencil and ink classes there.
“My artworks are done from my own photos or from life. Since wildlife does not sit still for the artist, this show is all done from my own photos. My studio overlooks a nice local lake called Spring Valley Lake. Drawing and painting give me the chance to ‘relive’ my experiences and visions. Artwork is to me a form of meditation.”
The Nature Art Gallery is located inside the Museum Store. Hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.; Saturday, 9 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.; and Sunday, noon to 4:45 p.m. Admission to the Gallery is free.
