Eight Paintings, Scenes of Henderson County, Donated to Wingate University, Hendersonville, NC by Costanza Knight

Eight Paintings, scenes in and around Henderson County, now hang in the main hall of Wingate University in Hendersonville, NC.  They are hand painted monotypes done on a printing press. Each location was selected as an area that was slated to be developed.   My goal was to capture the original feel of the natural topography before development happened,  I received a grant from the Arts Council of Henderson County to purchase the printing press.  When I saw the contemporary building that Wingate University is a part of, I knew it would make a fitting home for the series.
