About the artists Barbara Bear Jamison is a 4th generation Wilmingtonian. Her award winning works reflect her love of the coastal regions where she has lived and traveled. The scenes include people, boats and nature saturated with the beautiful light and color of the areas she paints.

Jenny McKinnon Wright is intrigued by light as it affects nature in a particular moment. To capture that emotion and connect with the viewer is the goal. It’s the effect of light on color that fascinates her. A constant student, Wright delights in the journey of pushing oil paint around to build forms using luscious combinations and varied techniques. She leaves it to the viewer to imagine stories about the place that caught her eye.

Rena Powell creates unique oil paintings that build on her love of coastal North Carolina, and the beauty of the Southeast. After running a successful marine canvas business for 15 years Rena returned to her childhood passion for drawing and painting. She now paints regularly plein air at many of the scenic places near her home such as; Southport, Wrightsville Beach, Bald Head Island, Wilmington, and the Outer Banks. In the few short years that she has been painting professionally, Rena has exhibited her work in galleries, museums, and art shows throughout the Southeast. Her paintings can be found in numerous private collections, and have won several awards. Rena lives in Southport, NC with her daughter.
