For the month of January, visitors to the RAL Art Center, 19 N Main Street, Kilmarnock have voted for their favorite piece of art in “You Be the Judge.” This annual exhibit is a favorite including all media paintings, photographs, sculpture, mosaic, fused glass and mixed media. Votes were tallied on January 21, and Carol Vaughn’s watercolor “Wild Susans” was the winner.
Carol has won numerous awards at the Art Center for her marine subjects, usually a sailing crew while racing. Her paintings capture her love of sailing and the spellbinding beauty of the water. “Wild Susans” gives us a new watercolor direction and the feeling of spring and summer approaching.
Carol earned a graphic design degree from Tyler School of Art, Temple University. She has worked as a designer and production manager in the Washington, D.C. area, and has now retired to the Northern Neck where she is an exhibiting artist at the RAL Art Center.
You Be the Judge exhibit will remain on display until January 28. Gallery hours are 10 am to 4 pm Wednesdays through Saturdays.
