Linda Meyer Browning featured at DCAC this month
The Dare County Arts Council will feature artist Linda Meyer Browning, who will present a one-woman show of her composite photography during October.
An opening reception is set for Oct. 5 from 6 to 8 p.m.as part of the First Friday celebration, featuring light fare, libations and the opportunity to meet the artist.
Browning’s work will be on exhibit through Oct. 31 at the Dare County Arts Council Gallery, at 300 Queen Elizabeth Avenue in downtown Manteo. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and Saturdays Noon to 4 p.m.
Browning works both in composite photography and watercolor, creating beautifully complex imagery of the natural world.
She attended West Virginia University in Morgantown and Appalachian State University in Boone, N.C. After working as a commercial artist and as a medical artist, she moved to Hatteras Island, where she met her husband and established Browning Artworks.
Browning is a member of the Watercolor Society of North Carolina, Dare County Arts Council and the Hatteras Island Art and Craft Guild.
When she isn’t working in her studio or painting on location, she’s giving lessons to budding painters, bird watching, exploring the dunes, or playing guitar and making art with her friends.
“My composites are made up of several thousand individual digital photos. Even though it takes me hundreds of hours to complete one, the process is always rewarding because, in the end, I have a picture that is unique in every way,” Browning said.
She creates composite photographs using editing tools from Photoshop. “The number of photos I manipulate to create one composite varies from 3,000 to 10,000. I print the completed digital file on museum-quality fine art paper or archival heavy-weight artist’s canvas using my large format 44″ Canon printer and Ultra Chrome pigments. Just like my watercolor paintings, each of my composites is a signed original,” Browning said.
