Art Reception Tonight Unveils Corry Paintings
The Classical Design Foundation presents an unveiling of master painter Kamille Corry's "Our Cultural Landscape," a series of oil paintings depicting the natural and cultivated beauty around James Boyd's Weymouth estate.
For the past six weeks, Corry has directed her distinctly poetic vision to the gardens and fields around Weymouth, interpreting the landscape through a series of oil paintings and sketches.
Residents will have the opportunity to meet the artist and see the results during a one-night-only exhibition at Mims Studios from 6 to 8 p.m. tonight (Wednesday Nov. 18), with remarks at 6:30 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public.
Realist painter Kamille Corry was born in 1966 in Houston, Texas.
Her art education took place primarily in Florence, Italy, from 1987 to 1990, where she pursued etching studies at Il Bisonte and drawing and painting at Studio Cecil-Graves.
Corry also trained extensively with painter D. Jeffrey Mims in Florence and North Carolina. She was later an assistant instructor to Mims at The Florence Academy's summer workshop.
Corry has exhibited throughout the South, including Washington, D.C., and at New York's Salmagundi Club. Numerous shows in her beloved Utah have showcased her paintings. Awards include the prestigious Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grant, the Director's Award for the Spring Salon at the Springville Museum of Art in Utah and the Achievement Award for the Florence Academy of Art Alumni Exhibition in San Francisco, California.
Currently residing in Salt Lake City, Utah, her work focuses on the figure while incorporating visions of Utah's stunning landscape. Her paintings reflect classical training and fine craftsmanship, rendering the figure in a modern, provocative light. In 2002, Corry started a small art academy in Salt Lake City for intensive studies in the figurative arts.
Mims Studio is located at 11 Camellia Way, Southern Pines (behind The Country Bookshop).
The Classical Design Foundation is a Southern Pines-based nonprofit 501 (c)(3) organization. It exists for the preservation, education and practice of classical visual design.
