Exhibiting during October 2017 in the Mazie Jones Gallery:
Reflections on the New
For the month of October, the Jones House Cultural and Community Center's Mazie Jones Gallery features artist Kim Abernethy's "Reflections on the New."
Born and raised in the Southeast, Kim has always possessed a heightened awareness of and a keen appreciation for the colors, forms, and textures she sees in the natural world. She is an oil painter whose impressionistic style evokes feelings of serenity and calm. Her work draws upon a sense of familiarity and connects the viewer to a moment in time captured on canvas.
Kim is a juried member of Oil Painters of America and Women Painters of the Southeast. She is also a member of the American Impressionist Society, North Carolina Plein Air Painters, several local art associations, and the Visual Art Exchange in Raleigh, NC.
In 2012, Kim was the recipient of a Regional Artist Project Grant which allowed her to study with instructors from the Ringling College of Art and Design.
