"The Works of Kelly Barnett"
November 15 - December 21


    

Kelly Barnett is a 25-year-old painter and sketch artist who resides in Mecklenburg County. She started painting and drawing in high school and then went to Delaware College of Art & Design for two years where she learned how to improve her skills using new techniques to enrich her artworks. After her stay in Delaware, she returned home and continued creating works of art simply for the fun of it. She normally sketches and paints for her friends and family. Kelly prefers pencil sketches but also enjoys using different media including oil paint, watercolor, and charcoal.

Many of her works are still life but she will create a rendering of nearly anything she finds interesting. She finds that listening to music while painting and drawing helps her capture her current mood, and her music choices tend to dictate what types of art she creates. Kelly enjoys experimenting with her creations and has utilized items including tea bags, toothpaste, salt, and pepper to add a bit of flair to her works. She strives to make her works accessible to everyone and hopes to continue doing what she loves.

She says, “Making art is relaxing and takes the stress away for me. I would love to be able to share my works and teach art to people who want to learn how to draw or paint.”

The Art Galleries are open for free public viewing from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and during all Colonial Center public performance events.
