Austrian-born, Arden, N.C.-based artist and sculptor Ernestine Bucking gently captures images of the diverse wonders of the natural world in her exhibit, Romantic Realism, on display in the Education Center daily October 7, 2017 – January 7, 2018. Featuring birds, wildlife, butterflies and landscapes in oil, acrylic and watercolor, Ernestine carefully uses tones and shades that closely mirror objects that appear in nature. She has hosted more than 100 one-woman shows across the nation, and has received numerous awards over the past four decades.
On Saturday, October 28 and Sunday, November 5, Ernestine will provide a free demonstration for members and visitors in the upstairs gallery of the Education Center. Come see the magic behind the artist!
