Pendleton Artists Society exhibits in Anderson

Pendleton Artists Society exhibits in Anderson


Katy Burke took part in a workshop with Reynolds. “I just really, really had fun. ... John Reynolds convinced me I could draw.” Burke lauded the society. “I’m having fun. ... It’s stretching me as an artist, making me hone my skills.” She has an oil painting in the current exhibit, “Autumn Harvest,” which employs warm contrast to showcase sunflowers.

Kitty Meyers, from Lapel, agreed the classes and the society are inspiring her. “I just tried it all – and now I want to be a master of something.”

Judy Renbarger came to Wednesday’s reception to appreciate the work of former students and members of the community. As a dean and counselor with more than 40 years in the Pendleton and Lapel school districts, she sees how people she once knew as teens are now stretching themselves in creative ways.

“It’s just been so much fun to watch the gifts and the talent,” said Renbarger. “This is encouraging me to go back into my creative work, too. … Pendleton needs to become a destination for artists. It’s just a great sense of community.”

Members of PAS are looking forward to their next exhibit coming up in November. The artists have been randomly paired to create collaborative works for the members-only show dubbed “The Blend.”

“It’s going to be a challenge — think outside the box,” said Farrell, who is exhibiting photography in the current show.
