Mission Statement
To involve, educate, and
enrich Cumberland County
and surrounding communities
with the opportunity to create
and freely view art.
Would you look at this; not only do our officers
color coordinate their clothes, they coordinate
with the paintings in the gallery.
Meet Our Newest Member
JoAnna Yarian
JoAnna has been drawing and painting since she was
about 11 and has enjoyed doing art ever since. She
graduated
from McDaniel
College in
Westminster,
Maryland, with
a degree in
Studio Art and
Art History. Now
she lives here
in NC with her
husband who is
in the military. She has worked with a variety of media including painting
(mostly oil and watercolor), drawing and sculpture. Her
heart has always been in 2D drawing and in particular,
colored pencil. Her favorite subjects are people, which,
she says, “have always been the soul of my work.” Since
childhood JoAnna has been fascinated with storybook
illustrations and illuminated manuscripts; both have greatly
influenced her work. She has found that the unique medium
of colored pencil helps bring an illustrative quality to her art.
The piece at left is entitled “The Last Bride.”

“Where Do We Go From Here?” Acrylic
by Rachel Davis
Our potters Jill Dieffenbach, Nancy Edge, Guy Jencks, and Sandra Valdivia had a bevy of new work;
functional pieces such as spoon rests, bowls, vases, mugs, platters, candlesticks, and dip trays were
seen in a wide array of colors, shapes, textures, and sizes. A few non-functional but highly artistic
pieces and some unexpected functional pieces like herb markers rounded out the works available.
Merle Prewitt’s colored pencil piece entitled “Stream” looked
really cute sitting in an easel on a table.
Three of our Supporting Members entered pieces in the Members’ Exhibit. Noreda Hess entered two
photographs -- “Bouquet of Violets” in the upper right corner and also “Dogwoods.” Nicole Middleton
entered “Thorns,” an oil shown in bottom right. Laura Bernstein entered two oil paintings, “Moon
Jellies #1” and “Moon Jellies 2” shown in the bottom left corner
We had some other displays as well. One wall had pictures our ladies painted during the camellia
show at Cape Fear Botanical Garden. Rose had “Tea Time with Camellias.” Annette painted the two
red camellias, ‘Black Magic’ on top and ‘Freedom Bell.’ Kathy Flood contributed “White Camellia.”
Another wall was devoted to mini collages by
our Visiting Artist Sharon DiGiulio. A few of
the collages and a close-up of one of them are
above. We even had a mystery piece. During
a “sprucing up” an old architectural rendering of
what the studio might look like was found. No
signature could be found; but in a phone call to
Barbara Olcott she said she thought it was done
by Melissa Clements during the earliest stages
of the studio.
What’s a birthday party without some
cake? This lovely cake was created by
Paula Jencks, photographed by Annette
Szczekutek and enjoyed by all.

“Create” Exhibit by Andy Bates
May 22 ~ June 22
Originally Andy Bates is from Oakton, VA. He has a B.A. and M.A. from East
Carolina University and is currently an Instructor of English there. He has lived in
NC since 1996. He is married and has one daughter.
Andy is a self-taught woodworker who never uses a plan or makes the same
piece twice. He says that when he bought his first house during graduate school
he couldn’t afford any decent furniture. He tired of his furniture falling apart and
determined to learn to build furniture that
was not only beautiful, but durable. He
uses beautiful woods such as walnut,
maple and cherry and doesn’t use stains
or dyes so the actual color of the wood
shines. Most of his furniture is built using
tongue and groove joinery with no nails
or screws. To test his coffee tables for
strength he stands on each piece.
After learning of The Wounded Warrior Project and getting
to know a student who had lost both feet in Afghanistan
Andy wanted to help wounded soldiers financially and
bring attention to the soldiers who serve our country. At
the CFS exhibit Bates sold shadow boxes with a yellow
ribbon made out of spent bullet
casings. The money from the
sale of the shadow boxes
went to the Fort Bragg Area
Community Foundation, which
provides financial assistance to soldiers and their
families.
His work can be seen at Emerge, a non-profit,
community-based gallery in Uptown Greenville. To
see pictures of more of his work check the gallery on
his website http://bateswoodworking.net/gallery.html.
Service-Learning Partnership with FSU
During the spring term Cape Fear Studios participated
in a service-learning partnership with Fayetteville State
University. Professor Socorro Hernandez-Hinek works with
Ms. Melissa Lyon of the office of Civic Engagement and
Service Learning to provide hands-on learning experiences
in the community for her students.
Four students worked in conjunction with CFS as a part
of this program. Nancy Edge went to FSU to teach
several classes; our Executive Director, Ann Griffin, gave
a business lesson to the students on the basics of and
importance of
records and
bookkeeping.
The students participated in a raku workshop with Nancy Edge and
Guy Jencks, took part in some CFS events and even had an exhibit of
their pottery at CFS.
Professor Hernandez-Hinek and Ms. Lyon gave a power point
presentation to our Board of Directors
explaining the program and showing
videos of the raku firing with the students
and Nancy and Guy. Professor Hinek
presented certificates and plaques to
Nancy, Guy, and Ann.

Lois Ferrari Memorial Scholarship
The Lois Ferrari Memorial Scholarship is given in memory of Lois Ferrari,
who was a member of the studio and an integral part of its mission.
The picture at left was found in our “archives.” The scholarship is
open to students at Methodist University, Fayetteville State University,
Fayetteville Technical Community College, Meredith College, Barton
College and the University of North Carolina at Pembroke
Loreto Oreckinto, a senior in the art program at Methodist University, is
the winner of the 2015 Lois Ferrari Memorial Scholarship given by Cape
Fear Studios. Oreckinto won $500 to pay for art supplies.
The painting at left is titled
“My Life” and the one below is
“Christopher.”
See more of Loreto’s work on
the next page.
The piece above is titled “Synchronized
Feathers and Words of Love.”
Above right is a linoleum cut print entitled
“Invitation to Death through Beauty.”
At right is “At Last Free.”
Cape Fear Studios Main Gallery
7th Annual National 2D Competition
June 26 ~ July 20
Cape Fear Studios’ Annual National Juried Competition and Exhibit
featuring 2D artists from throughout the United States.
This year’s National 2D Competition had 62 entries from 35 artists including 13 from out of NC; juror
Dee Beard Dean chose 40 of the paintings to be exhibited in the show. Dean wrote, “I want to thank
you very much for selecting me as your juror and judge of awards for the 2015 2 D Competition. I am
honored to have been involved with such a nice group of artists and loved viewing your work. There
were many winners in this competition. I nearly always find something positive and good in every
painting that I view: The very act of creating a 2 dimentionsal work is a wonderful thing...so in my
mind you are all winners.” Dean’s comments about each of the winners is included with the picture.
BEST OF SHOW: “Which Point of View” Oil on Panel by Evelien Bachrach
“This trip-tych is definitely a dramatic and original painting. The overlapping of color, variety of edges
and spontaneity attracted me immediately. Not only is this painting appealing to the eye but it is
thought out and fresh as well. I love the brush work and felt this artist was thinking about color and
design throughout the whole process of painting it. The frame was also included in the image that I
viewed, which is usually not the case in a juried show. However, it is so fitting and compliments the
simplicity of the design. This is definitely an award winner!”
FIRST PLACE: “AEFS #11” Acrylic by Bradley Carter
“This abstract painting has a good sense of design and movement. There is a freedom involved in this painting that is very
appealing. The complimentary colors are a good choice and the
entrance created by the dark calligraphic lines lead you to the focal point immediately and helps the eye to stay at the focal point.
The great design element is the main reason I choice this painting
as a first place winner.”
SECOND PLACE: ‘Dance of the Butterflies’ Acrylic by Ernie L. Fournet
“I looked for brush work in this painting and then
discovered that the artist probably uses air brush to
create the softness in edges in the painting..giving
a photogenic appearance to the work. There is a
lot of detail in the costumes and the painting does
have appeal to the viewer. I would say the action and
movement of the dancers is the main element in this
painting.”
THIRD PLACE: “Pepsi Challenge” Oil by Patricia O’Brien
“This painting shows a lot of creativity in the arrangement
of soda cans and then placing the figure in the midst. The
combination of the commercial objects, plus the human
element certainly gets the attention of the viewer. One has
to look at this painting for a while to get involved visually.
I chose this painting because of the originality and the
arrangement of the subject matter, plus the application of
paint.”
HONORABLE MENTION: “Quicksilver”
“This artist has a very blocky, graphic style, using
hard edges throughout the painting. I like the use of
shapes in the painting....obviously leaning toward a
very graphic style. The painting tells a story and has
clean and vibrant color.”
HONORABLE MENTION: “Southern Gothic”
Acrylic by Elaine Dowling
“The more I observed this painting the more I
began to feel drawn to the emotional aspect of
this painting. I like the soft coolness of the color
that was used to depict a very old building and
the variety of greens depicting the vines and
foliage surrounding the old structure.”
Crowd waiting
for the awards
ceremony
Melvin had to wait a long time to be able
to actually present an award, but he finally
got his chance. One of the Honorable
Mention awards went to Elaine Dowling for
“Southern Gothic.”
See picture on previous page.
Then the Mayor got his chance.
Mayor Nat Robertson presented
his Special Award to our own
Steve Opet for “Old Indian” a
Mixed Media piece seen at left
below.
Steve had two pieces
accepted into the
show. The top picture
in the photo at right is
“Blue Boots,” also a
Mixed Media piece.
As usual, our own CFS artists fared well in the 2D Exhibit.
Left to right, top to bottom:
Nancy Edge stepped out of the medium that is familiar to
your editor and entered an oil painting “Catching Rays.”
“Morning Light” Oil by Rose Kennedy
“Ravens Roost” Oil by Paula Fitzpatrick
“Best Friends 4ever” and “Suisun Slough” Watercolors by
Sook Sienkiewiez
“Coast Guard Cutter” Watercolor by Sandie McFarlane
“Ramsay Garden” Watercolor by Sandie McFarlane
(continued to next page)
Kathy Flood posed with her two pieces shown
below: “Jen” a charcoal and graphite piece and
“Afro Beauty” a watercolor..
Supporting Member Laura Bernstein
entered “What Lies Below-The Hydrilla
Infestation of Lake Waccamaw” created
in Gouache, Acrylic, Ink, and Charcoal
Wash. The environmental implications
of her piece led to some interesting
conversations with our members and
guests.
Our ever vigilent sales crew hard at work
Of course we had food! We also
had more beautiful art including
pottery and jewelry but space is
limited.
Three of our visiting artists were able to
join us. At left Gaylord Picard stood by his
watercolor “Serenity” - the bottom painting.
At right Amelia Surratt posed with her oil,
"Grandmother's Placemat." She had a
second oil accepted, “Angels We Have
Heard on High.”
Joan Carr posed with her watercolor
"Poppy."
There is simply not enough space
to show each entry; but, as our juror
indicated, they were all winners.

Youth Education
2015 Summer Classes
July 6-July 10 Exploring Sculpture (Ages 12 and Up) Instructor: Felicia
Maye. No photos were provided
From July 27-31 Instructor Laura Bernstein taught Batik and Tie-Dye, and
from the photo it looks like she also served lunch. Students had to plan their
projects then do the batik or tie-dye, and it looks like some of them even did
a little sewing. This looks like a really fun class.

From August 3-7 Jeff Nihiser taught Beginning Oil Painting. In Jeff’s words,
“The students are doing some really good work. We have each working in
a distinctly different style - an impressionist, a realist, a post-impressionist,
and one who has a Matisse looking thing going. Very diverse group.” Their
diverse styles show up pretty well in the photos below.

CAPE FEAR STUDIOS CLASSES
Lynn Padrick regularly teaches classes on Tuesday and Thursday at Cape Fear Studios. Her classes
include Beginning Oil Painting, Beginning Drawing and Colored Pencil, Watercolor A to Z, and Pen
and Ink. Consult the website capefearstudios.com for details for each term.
Several Cape Fear Studios artists are available for classes throughout the year. Schedule a class
with any of them at Cape Fear Studios, 910-433-2986 or at [email protected] Nancy
Edge teaches private pottery lessons including the wheel and hand building. Jaylene Nordgren
teaches stained glass classes on Wednesdays. Brandon Bass teaches drawing and painting to
adults and young adults. Kathy Flood, one of Cape Fear Studios’ portrait artists, shares her love of
drawing through classes designed for the beginner student. The classes are for children ages 8 and
above. More information is available on our website.
In Jaylene’s class students choose their own
projects and work at their own level. Jaylene
helps them with whatever problem they
encounter, gives advice about what step to do
next. Gina’s pumpkin is her simple piece to relax
from working on her Tiffany style lamp. Robert is
very new to the hobby, but his eagle is looking
really good. Linda Sue and Curtis are trying to
confuse the issue by working on stained glass
kaleidoscopes. The plane kaleidoscope is a
collaboration between Jaylene,
Linda Sue, and Curtis.
News from Our Artists
Our artists have been busy! What I think is neat is that we have seen most of these pieces before
they were entered into competitions in other cities and states.
Steve Opet has two pieces, “Julia’s
Kitchen” (left) and “Pinehurst Boys”
(right) in the Best of West Virginia’s
8th Annual Exhibition. The show is
at the David L. Dickirson Fine Arts
Gallery, Tamarack Artisan Center,
Beckley, WV.
His piece “Red Go Round” (left)
won 2nd Place, drawing, and
“Green Socks” (right) received
an Honorable mention at the
35th Annual Fine Arts Festival,
Campbell House, Moore County
Arts Council.
Several members were juried into the Sampson Arts Councils’ annual
juried 2D event. The juror for the Sampson AC show was Jeremy Sams.
First Place: Kathy Flood - “Jen” - Charcoal and Graphite (right)
Second Place: Paula Fitzpatrick - “Virginia Vista” (left)
Third Place: Annette Szczekutek - “Golden Timpani” Oil on Canvas (below) (Continued on next page)
Paula Fitzpatrick reported that she has retired
from doing the traveling art shows this year,
and is concentrating on teaching, starting a clay
studio, serving on the Board and setting up and
coordinating art workshops at the Sampson
County Arts Council. Lucky Sampson County.
Honorable Mention: Rose Kennedy “Kathryn’s Ridge” Oil on Canvas (left)
and also ‘Lamp Light’ no prize (right)
Sandie McFarlane, Karen Moore, and
Sook Sienkiewicz also had pieces
accepted into the show. Our artists
better watch out or Sampson County is
going to ban them from the event.
Gail Harris and Rose Kennedy attended
the Southport Paint the Town: Plein Air
Paintout in April. Two days of painting
outdoors in the beautiful town of Southport, with artists from all over
the state.
Rose was juried for the second year into the High Point Piedmont
Plein Air Paint Out, to be held in September. Thirty artists from
across the United States will paint for 3 days, culminating in a
collectors’ event on the last day. The Piedmont Plein Air Paintout is
an annual arts competition organized by the J Gallery of Fine Art in
High Point and Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Proceeds raised by
the 2015 Paintout will support the YWCA of High Point.
The artists that are selected for the competition are among the best
plein air painters in the country. They will travel to High Point, NC
and paint for three days competing for over $6,000 in prizes. The paintings produced during the
competition will be exhibited at the J Gallery located at the J.H Adams Inn
and sold at various times during the event.
Lastly, Rose participated in the On Common Ground: 2015 Pastel Paintings
from the Mountains to the Sea. Held in Greensboro at The Art Shop, this
was the 4th year of the event. Pastel artists belonging to any one of the
three pastel societies in the state are invited to enter the juried event.
“Reflection,” her piece for this event, is
seen at right. Juror was Teresa Saia.
Sook Sienkiewicz’s painting “We will be
back” (left) has been accepted into the 70th
Annual Juried Exhibition of the Watercolor Society of North Carolina.
The juror for this competition was renowned and internationallyacclaimed watercolorist Linda Baker. The opening will be on October
11, 2015, at the Mooresville Arts Center.
Annette, Rose, and Sook were accepted in the Art and Flowers show that was at Cape Fear Botanical
Gardens and then FSU for display. Annette’s painting (left) is entitled “Hidden Gem.” Rose’s painting
is “A Little on the Shady Side” (center). Sook entered “Choir Practice.”
Michelle Bir took Second Place in Digital Manipulation in the show called ‘Point of View: Juried
Photography Competition. Her entry is “Rabelias.”
Gail Ferguson spent three weeks this summer at William
Holland School of Lapidary Arts as a co-instructor with
Mack Thornton for three silversmithing classes. Students
in one class learned to melt scrap silver, form it into ingots,
hammer and roll the silver into sheets and then used it to
create Native American Jewelry. Another class involved
sawing and various forms of soldering to “take your
jewelry to the next level.” In a Level III class called Above
and Beyond students used various skills to include more
complex stone setting and fancy ring shanks. Earlier in the
year Gail took a course to expand her inlay skills to cutting complex angles needed to make an inlay
cuff bracelet. Gail will resume teaching at FTCC in September.
Our Executive Director, Ann Griffiin, was featured in the May issue of Women’s View Magazine in an
article entitled Celebrating the Women of Fayetteville’s Fine Arts Scene.
Also featured were Chris Kastner, former director of CFS and current
CEO of the Fayetteville Symphony Orchestra,
and Deborah Mintz Executive Director of the
Fayetteville/Cumberland County Arts Council.
Needless to say Ann presented CFS in a very
positive light. Photos are from Women’s View
Magazine.
Outreach
Several of our artists painted a mural at the Child Advocacy
Center on Rowan Street. I am sure that it must brighten the day
for the children who are served there.
On the last Tuesday of the month our artists assist residents
of Carillon Assisted Living Facilities with a craft project of
some kind. A recent project involved decorating pleated fans
and attaching them to wooden clothespins - also decorated.
What did the residents find to do with them? They decorated their doors and even their walkers.
In May the project was garden hats; it looks like a lot of fun and
the ladies were proud to wear them as you can see from the photo
above. In June it was time to prepare for the Fourth of July. Don’t
you love the looks on the ladies’ faces?
“At the end of the day, conservation is about love, and art is the language of
love. Art is what brings us closer to the world.”
Kierán Suckling, Executive Director of the Center for Biological Diversity
“There are two kinds of truth; the truth that lights the way and the truth that
warms the heart. The first of these is science, and the second is art. Neither is
independent of the other or more important than the other. Without art science
would be as useless as a pair of high forceps in the hands of a plumber. Without
science art would become a crude mess of folklore and emotional quackery.
The truth of art keeps science from becoming inhuman, and the truth of science
keeps art from becoming ridiculous.”
Raymond Chandler, author of mystery stories including The Big Sleep
