The Greenbrier Artists Group continues to display the works of member artists in the Greenbrier County Public Library in Lewisburg. During May and June, John Burnham will display a variety of his paintings.\r\n\r\nHaving a parent who was a professional artist, Burnham was inspired in art from childhood. At the University of Massachusetts he was able to take an elective course in basic design and later studied basic design and watercolor painting at the Worcester Art Museum in Worcester, MA. During this time he got to know and was influenced by several artists and students in the Boston, MA area. He has enjoyed painting ever since.\r\n\r\nHis preferred medium is watercolor. He also works in pastel, mixed media, crayon and pen and ink. In addition to traditional landscape and still life painting he has delved into various design experiments - works seeking to reveal design concepts in nature inspired to bring into focus the beauty of its abstract design elements.\r\n\r\nBurnham is a member of the Greenbrier Artists, the Hampton (VA) Arts League, the Suffolk (VA) Arts League and the Isle of Wight (VA) Arts League. He has studios in Alderson and in Smithfield, VA.\r\n\r\nPlease pay a visit and enjoy the revolving art exhibits at the library. If you are interested in art, you are welcome to join the Greenbrier Artists. Currently, outdoor meetings are planned through the summer. When Carnegie Hall reopens post-pandemic, the group looks forward to returning to its regular 9 a.m. meetings on Thursdays in the Kellar Art Studio to paint together and to learn new techniques. Membership is open to all at a very reasonable rate.\r\n\r\nFor further information please contact Jeanne Brenneman at 304-645-3050.
