The May art exhibit at Oak Ridge Public Library features a selection of paintings by Ouita Northcutt and Mary Henderson.

Northcutt has taught evening school at the Anderson County Career and Technical Center for over 30 years. She has also taught at the Oak Ridge Art Center, Oak Ridge YWCA, the Knoxville Community Centers and private lessons.

Northcutt paints scenes from her life experiences. The painting, River of Life, displays events with friends, family, at work, and at play. She paints rustic landscapes, including one of Blue Ridge Parkway’s Mabry Mill and a group of textured, three dimensional woodland scenes.

Henderson uses watercolor as her medium. This exhibit features two paintings of Oak Ridge locations, Jackson Square and the intersection of Oak Ridge Turnpike and Central Avenue. Other watercolors depict intimate scenes of friends and family life.

Please visit the Oak Ridge Public Library during the month of May to view this local artwork.

The Library is located in the Civic Center on the Oak Ridge Turnpike. For more information, please call (865) 425-3455 or visit
