LEWISBURG (WVDN) – Carnegie Hall’s new exhibits are underway with three new galleries featuring the works of regional artists on display through October 28.
The Old Stone Room Gallery feature works by artists Shari O’Day.
Old Stone Room, located on the ground floor of Carnegie Hall, will feature works by the Monroe County resident.
O’day is a native New Englander and moved to Monroe County in 1993 with her five children. She has always loved animals and being outdoors and felt it would be a great place to raise her kids.
She has actively sought instruction through books, tapes and workshops through Monroe Arts Alliance, Greenbrier Artists, and formal training. She enjoys painting animals and nature, often using bright colors that have become her signature style.
She tends to paint with acrylics, but also uses oils and enjoys experimenting with various mediums, such as pastels, inks, resin, pouring paint, and adding texture to paint.
Over the past two years she has been juried into Tamarack and Carnegie Hall and sold a number of paintings.
Most recently, she has been taking a course with Nicky Peet of France, founder of IntuARTiv Expression, on the use of combining essential oils and intuitive painting. One of O’Day’s goals is to become a facilitator and help people process their emotions through this process.
Carnegie Hall’s art exhibits are free and open to the public, Monday through Friday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
