Upcoming Events

500 N Main Street - The Stokes County Arts Council is pleased to announce the opening of our upcoming exhibit, “Art Through the Lenses of Time and Nature,” featuring Kitty Ray Brown and Patty Young in the Apple Gallery during the month of November. A virtual opening will be held on Friday, November 13, 2020, at 5:30 p.m. on the Stokes Arts Facebook page, coming to you live from the Apple Gallery. You may visit the exhibit other times at the Stokes County Arts Council, 500 N. Main Street, Danbury, North Carolina. Kitty Ray Brown is a local archival photographer and an oil painter. Her exhibit features Impressionist Landscape Paintings, Oils and Archival Photography. Brown worked in the Art Department at Pembroke University, which originally sparked her interest in art, and spent decades designing fine jewelry using precious stones and metals. After retirement, she became a professional photographer, taught by Jesse Moore. More recently, Brown has studied Impressionist Landscape Art under Craig Richards, and she has even tried her hand at painting on rocks. Brown has won several awards from contests in North Carolina and Virginia and had her flower photographs made into woven tapestries for hotels and resorts around the world. Brown is an active Board member of the Stokes County Art Council, supporting events and exhibitions through photography. Brown also enjoys spending time with her family; she is the mother of 3 and grandmother of 11 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. Brown manages the Stokes Future Farmers’ Market at Hanging Rock. “I have owned and used a camera since my early teens. I carry it constantly and make pictures every day. Now that I create Impressionist Landscape Paintings, I use my photographs as inspiration,” said Brown. Patty Young said, “A cup of coffee and a camera – the two things I need to start my day. “ She has been taking photographs since middle school but has recently worked on improving her skills since retirement from the computer industry in 2019. Young has studied under two local artists, Kitty Ray Brown and Jesse H. Moore VII. Young lives on 53 beautiful acres in Stokes County with her husband, Randy, and dog, Grits, and she is inspired by flowers, birds, butterflies, deer, and turkeys seen on her property. Young said, “I love being outside enjoying nature. I often feel my heart beat a little faster when I see a butterfly land in a perfect light, a doe and fawn outside my kitchen window, or a bluebird flying back with nesting material. Sometimes you just know when you have gotten a great shot as soon as you hear the shutter click.” Young grew up in Garner, N.C. and attended both UNC Chapel Hill and North Carolina State University. Most of my career was spent working for Dell as both a Senior Systems Engineer and an Enterprise Technologist, during which time she traveled nationally and internationally. International cities I visited for work included Paris, Madrid, Toronto, and Amsterdam. Within the Unites States, I traveled extensively across all regions of the country. This exhibit will be on display November 1-November 30 in the Apple Gallery. The Stokes County Arts Council is open to the public Monday through Saturday, 10:00am-6:00pm and Sunday 1:00pm-5:00pm.
