The annual Art Walk season opens at the Arnold Art Gallery with an exhibition of watercolor and acrylic paintings by Carol H. Fairlie on April 4 with a Friday evening reception from 5-7. The artist will be present to greet visitors and discuss her work.

The title of the exhibition is ”Reflections” that includes still life variations of colored light through glass objects as well as memory recollections of visits to grand hotels in Europe. The range of realism to abstraction also reflects her masterly artistic skill and vision.

She served on the Board of Directors for the National Watercolor Society as Newsletter editor and holds Signature status in the Watercolor Honor Society, the Philadelphia Watercolor Society and Elite Signature status in the Watercolor Art Society of Houston (WAS-H).

The artist studied painting for four years at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, received her Bachelors of Fine Arts from Texas Woman’s University and her Master’s of Fine Arts at the School of Visual Arts/University of North Texas where she is an Honored Alumni.

Ms. Fairlie is a Professor of Art at Sul Ross State University where she teaches watercolor, oil painting, drawing, figure drawing, and print making and where she received outstanding Faculty of the Year. She maintains a studio in Alpine and invites visitors to visit.

The exhibit of ”Reflections” will continue to be on view at the Arnold Art Gallery through April 29 and the public is cordially invited from 9to5, Monday through Saturday.
