Having painted occasionally during her professional years as an OB/Gyn., in retirement she has actively explored color and texture in landscapes, florals, and abstracts, predominantly using oil paints. She has studied with various expert artists through the years, and is inspired partly by her Grandmother’s career in painting.

A note from the artist:

Dr. Jenkins believes strongly in the emphasis on art that ClearWater represents; and is excited that the 20% commission on any painting sold in the ClearWater Gallery during the Adventures in Color show, will go toward realizing the vision that ClearWater signifies for this community.

TenantShowV.Banner1.jpg

CONCORD, NC - The tenant artists of ClearWater Artist Studios will gather to welcome the public and discuss their latest work and experiences as working artists, this Friday, March 22, 2019. Some works in the show, ‘Tenant Artists Show V,’ mark key recent developments in the evolution of certain artists’ style, choices and career path; while others exhibit the mastery of techniques and subject matter honed over years.

Spectacular Raptor Portraits, vibrant children’s book illustrations, large and affecting abstract expressionist pieces, and softly-hued, lovely landscapes are just some of the works on display- not to mention a range of turned-wood and glass pieces.

ClearWater Artist Studios houses the working studios of 12 artists as well as the Southern Piedmont Woodturners’  Association (a Club).  All artists leasing individual studios are juried-in using a range of criteria (currently, the waiting list stands at 14).

The Artists will form a Panel Discussion in the middle of the Gallery starting at 7:00 p.m. during the Opening Reception. Guests are welcome to enter after this time, we just ask consideration for those speaking and listening.

Free; free parking; refreshments.

Art Of Injury Prevention: Exhibit Opening

The North Carolina Athletic Trainers’ Association in conjunction with ClearWater Artist Studios,

is pleased to present The Art of Injury Prevention and Athletic Training, an Athletic Training and Sports Medicine photographic and illustrated art exhibition displayed at ClearWater Artist Studios in Concord, NC (part of the Charlotte Metro area) with an opening reception Sunday, March 10th, 2019 from 2:00 - 5:-00 PM in our Second gallery/ Lower Level Community Room. The event is free and open to the public. On hand will be the ballerina featured in the photos and the photographer. Regional athletes especially are invited to attend.

—— Click here for our FaceBook Event Page of the same event!

ClearWater Artist Studios, in partnership with the North Carolina Athletic Trainers’ Association, will open this exhibit of a series of art photographs, commissioned to draw attention to approaches for best practices in preventing sudden death and catastrophic injury in athletics in North Carolina. The idea is to utilize art for a series of educational posters to achieve this goal.

The exhibit will be on view from Feb. 25 through March 29, 2019. It is open to the public, and will celebrate March as National Athletic Training Month. The art will be in the Community Room/ Second Gallery at ClearWater Artist Studios.

Sports, team-based or individual, provide confidence, social skills, self esteem and physical activity; but during a 17 year period (July 1, 2000 through June 30, 2017) there have been 489 catastrophic sport-related deaths documented among high school and college athletes in the United States, captured by the National Center for Catastrophic Sport Injury Research. There have been 20 events captured among athletes in North Carolina during the same time period.
