Friday reception planned for Shirley Jeter watercolor exhibit

RICHMOND — The reception for artist Shirley Jeter’s watercolor exhibit at the Richmond Area Arts Center is scheduled for Friday, Sept. 6, from 5 to 7 p.m.

An artist talk will begin at 6 p.m. Admission is free for both the exhibit and reception.

“Join us for wine, finger foods, fellowship and viewing of Shirley's beautiful watercolors,” said Deborah Kidd, RAAC executive director.

The exhibit runs through Sept. 27 at the Arts Center located at 399 W. Water St. Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The exhibit theme is “Going Coastal” and features “amazing scenes of life near the ocean guaranteed to calm the senses and make one long for the easy life.”

On display are more than 100 original watercolors as well as note cards and reproductions. Sizes of the paintings vary and many are already matted and framed.

Growing up in the rural community of Fern Creek outside Louisville, Shirley Mack Jeter developed a love of nature and a love of art. These two loves resulted in a fine arts degree from the University of Kentucky.

While raising a family of three daughters Shirley and her husband Tom began to exhibit her artwork at outdoor art fairs on the weekends. They ultimately purchased a small gift shop specializing in quality handcrafted items which rendered them too busy to continue exhibiting at fairs. Shirley fueled her artistic nature by designing and producing personalized artwork for her customers.

After 10 years Shirley decided to concentrate exclusively on watercolor paintings. She was eventually selected as a member of the Kentucky Arts Council Platinum 10 groups which provided special training in marketing and sales for selected artists and craftsmen. In 2012, Shirley added acrylic canvasses to her portfolio.
