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.
