For landscape artist Cynthia Walling, painting outdoors in Vermont and Maine has its advantages and disadvantages. The borough artist is displaying her work at the library in November and will have an artist reception on Saturday, November 8 from 1:00 to 4 pm.
“Fresh air presents many challenges, but offers incomparable inspiration,” Walling said. “It’s fun to be outdoors with the sun and wind, despite heat and insects.”
The retired special education and history teacher, who taught at Elizabeth High School, has exhibited at the Barron Art Center, Johnson and Johnson, Joyce Browning’s Livingston Art Gallery in New Brunswick, New Jersey State Museum, Monmouth College, Middlesex Community College, and the Cornelius Low Museum in Piscataway.
Walling has enjoyed doing outdoors painting at the Maine Coastal Art Workshop in Rockland, Maine, the Wildacres Summer Workshop in Little Switzerland in North Carolina and the Ringling Brothers Summer Art School in Sarasota Florida.
