Karen Vaughn has been painting scenes of St Mary’s County since she moved to Lexington Park from Indiana in 1969. Her paintings, which she painted in the open air, include the landscape and farms and those who work it, watermen and their equipment, forests and waters of the area, flowers, the beautiful changing sky and the world around her. She works in oil, pastel, watercolor and ink, but her primary mediums are pastel and oil. She has been a member of the North End Gallery in Leonardtown for many years and has exhibited in various locations in St. Mary’s County.
She attended art classes at the Herron School of Art in Indianapolis and classes at St. Mary’s College as well as private study. The beauty of southern Maryland has been the source of most of her paintings and her interpretation of the landscape.
Karen invites people to call to visit her studio at 21454 Williams Drive in Lexington Park to see more of her work. Contact her at 301-481-3916 to make an appointment to visit.
Lexington Park Library
Show runs June 1 - July 1, 2015
This Art Gallery is proof of the power of one woman’s hard work!
Candy Cummings had a vision to create an exhibit space in the Lexington Park Library, which would display the artwork of local artists.
The Library Board agreed that this would enhance the library experience by exposing library customers to the beauty and power of original art.
In 2005, the Lexington Park Library Art Gallery was created and through Candy’s hard work and dedication her vision became a reality.
In 2014, the St. Mary’s County Arts Council agreed to take over the coordination of the Gallery and Candy donated funds to create an Arts Council Library Gallery Fund which will provide for its ongoing support.
THANK YOU to Candy Cummings!
One woman who has truly made a difference to our library and to our community.
