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 in the hallway connecting the lobbies of Carteret Health Care at 3500 Arendell St., Morehead City.
These shows are free and open to the public at all times. The works of art are for sale, and purchase can be arranged through the Carteret Health Care Foundation office.
Ms. Werthwein has a Master in Fine Art in painting and Master of Art Education from East Carolina University.
According to a release, she loves to help liberate creativity in others, encouraging them to “take a chance.”
She has taught art at many levels, including to preschoolers, elementary, secondary, community college, those with disabilities, inmates, university classes and professional artists.
She offers classes at her studio and gallery in Beaufort.
As a native North Carolinian, she is influenced by her life in coastal North Carolina 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 to the abstract, she enjoys surprise and following the lead of the imagination.
Many of her works include the flowing sea and wild horses of the Outer Banks in vibrant colors.
