Wake Forest artist in Raleigh exhibition
Jean Kolb Grunewald, a seven-year resident of Wake Forest, has pieces of art on display in a premiere exhibit, Art of the Landscape, at Nicole’s Studio & Gallery, 719 N. Person St., Raleigh.
The pieces on display are mainly those of waterfalls Grunewald has seen while traveling in Hawaii, Alaska and Africa.
“We have visited several locations with spectacular waterfalls,” said Grunewald. “As I looked at them with an artist’s eye I saw a number of characteristics that I wanted to incorporate in paintings.
“I want people who view (the Victorial Falls painting) to hear the thunderous roar of those falls,” she said.
