PAC Gallery to host watercolor exhibit
PRINCETON — Barry Mayworm, a new and emerging artist from Princeton, will exhibit his original artwork in the Prairie Arts Center Gallery through the month of September, beginning with an opening reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday.
Using watercolors, Mayworm has developed his own unique style called the “mottled look,” which uses marks of various colors and textures to create expressive and enduring images. His art includes landscapes and florals that celebrate the beauty of nature. He also paints cityscapes, which illustrate the architecture and vitality of our city. Barry is a perpetual student of art, always exploring new and interesting ways of creating art.
Mayworm has a degree in structural engineering from the University of Illinois and after a 40-year career in engineering, construction and building, he retired in 2007. “For me retirement was not going to be about sitting on the front porch in a rocking chair watching the world go by. I was going to be actively doing something.” So at age 61, he decided to take some art courses at Morton Arboretum. He found it engaging and stimulating and gradually found himself spending more and more time drawing and painting. It was then that he decided that art would be his second career.
