Images of Coastal Inspirations in Linda Werthwein’s Paintings

For the month of July, the Cassie Howe Algeo Gallery will feature the flowing images of Beaufort resident Linda Werthwein. This exhibit will be in the Gallery located in the hallway connecting the new and old lobbies of Carteret Health Care at 3500 Arendell St., Morehead City.

As always, these shows are free and open to the public at all times. These works of art are for sale and purchase can be arranged through the Carteret Healthcare Foundation Office.

Linda has an MFA in Painting and MAEd in Art Education from East Carolina University, and loves to help liberate creativity in others, encouraging them to “take a chance.”  She has taught art at many levels including preschoolers, elementary, secondary, Community College, disability people, inmates, university and professional artists. She offers classes at her studio/gallery in Beaufort, NC close to the sea.

As a native North Carolinian, she is strongly influenced by her life in coastal NC and the Caribbean where she frequently travels. Her paintings are colorful renditions that vary from serenely blended oils to gestural watercolors.  

Moving from a touch of realism the abstract, she enjoys surprise and following the lead of the imagination. Many of her working included the flowing sea, and wild horses of the Outer Banks in vibrant color.
