August 2018 Featured Artists
Ron Lamm, Paintings
Ron Lamm was born in Wilson County, North Carolina. At age 11 he moved to New Bern, where he grew up on National Avenue. His interest in drawing began at an early age. After retiring from Hatteras Yachts in 2008, he rediscovered his talent for art, and took painting classes in acrylics from well-known local artist Maggie Peacock. Ron strives toward photorealism in his work, and especially enjoys capturing an animal’s personality when painting pet portraits.
Eileen Wroe, Paintings
Eileen Wroe, current president of Community Artists Gallery & Studios, brought her love of painting from New England to New Bern. After a 20-year career as a corporate meeting planner, she retired with her husband to Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, where she became a licensed Realtor She also decided to try her hand at painting, beginning with watercolors, and taking as many classes possible. Ten years later, the couple moved to New Hampshire and Wroe was inspired to take up oils, studying with Lois Griffel and Susan Sarback, well-known followers of the artistic principles developed by Charles Hawthorne, an influential American impressionist who founded The Cape Cod School of Art. After moving to North Carolina, Eileen became a member of the Coastal Carolina Plein Air Painters (CCPAP) with whom she paints regularly. She also joined Twin Rivers Artists Association (TRAA), and in 2015 was Program Chairman and Vice President.
