Local couple exhibits joint show at Unitarian Universalist Meetinghouse

Lynda and George Wood, who do watercolor and photography respectively, will show their work together at the Unitarian Universalist Meetinghouse from February 9 to April 1. They are both long-term residents of the Outer Banks and have had careers in other fields.
George has an environmental consulting company and Lynda is a retired teacher. They have both been very involved in community work, including Lynda’s time as executive director of Outer Banks Sporting Events and George’s time on the Dare County Airport Authority board.
George says that his artistic philosophy is to present “stories illuminated.” His formal training as a scientist and lifelong avocation of philosophy forms the foundation of his craft that is consistent with reality and yet spiritual in essential principals.
Lynda explores her lifelong passions for nature, the environment and art through the medium of watercolor. The opportunity for creativity within this medium seems limitless and thus stimulates her imagination. Watercolor can be baffling, challenging, exciting and fun all at once.
The public is invited to an opening reception of the Woods’ show on February 9 at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Outer Banks meetinghouse, located at 831 Herbert Perry Road on the corner of Kitty Hawk and Herbert Perry Roads. Both artists will give a talk about themselves and their work starting promptly at 11:45 a.m. Refreshments will be served.
