An Evening With Carol Hein
June 11 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
You’re cordially invited to the official opening of Carol Hein’s exhibit on Thursday, June 11 from 4-8pm at the Rhyolite Gallery, 505 2nd Street in downtown Castle Rock. Light snacks and beverages will be available.
Carol Hein, of Carol Hein Fine Art, has been drawing and painting ever since she could remember. Whenever her grandfather visited, he would bring a big box of crayons and they would draw for hours. The love of color propels her art to this day, and she is continually delighted by the variety of colors in nature. In 2011, she left the corporate world and started painting in earnest, emerging herself in classes at the Art Student’s League of Denver, and traveling to the Lyme Art Institute to study with impressionists from the Lyme art colony, and visiting instructors from the Scottsdale School of Art.
In 2014, she began a year-long instructional course with Kevin Weckbach and was fortunate enough to be accepted into his continuing masters course of study. Although she enjoys painting almost anything, she finds herself drawn to old barns. They are disappearing from the landscape quickly, and preserving their memory makes painting them very special to her. Living and working in spectacular Colorado is a bonus — the weather is exceptional, allowing her to be outside most days sketching, painting field studies, and taking photo references before heading back to the studio.
See you Thursday afternoon and evening!
