DESCRIPTION

Imagine a two-story tall blank canvas of muslin, hanging in a 2,500 square foot museum gallery, waiting for a story to emerge from the buckets of paint resting on the scaffolding...

Beginning in August 2012, the Hickory Museum of Art will proudly host internationally known artist, Brenda Mauney Councill, for several months while she paints and brings to life a large-scale mural hanging in the Coe Gallery of the Museum.

Brenda Councill conducts workshops and on site educational forums on the process of creating large-scale works of art. She has completed the largest contemporary painted dome in the southeast at the North Carolina Research Campus.

Her monumental murals can be viewed at landmark buildings: The Belk Library and Reich College of Education, Appalachian State University, NC; Presbyterian College, SC; and St. Mary’s Hospital, GA.
