Vanishing Florida – a Highway Man Style Exhibition by Lynn Herrick

Local Umatilla artist, Lynn Herrick will be exhibiting over 30 of her oil paintings from Dec. 29th to Jan. 30th at the W. T. Bland Library in Mount Dora. Herrick’s work has evolved from charcoals, acrylics, photography, pottery, basketry, fused glass and, finally, to oils. She has studied these various mediums in Miami, Hendersonville (NC), and Ocala. She now paints in the traditional Highwaymen style having studied with R. L. Lewis, Jr., one of the original Highwaymen, for the past four years. Lynn has lived in Florida for over 50 years and feels that the Florida she captures on her canvases is disappearing exponentially with rampant “development.” She is dedicated to preserving this vanishing landscape in her own artistic way.

Herrick’s “Vanishing Florida” series will be exhibited in the Community Room of the library during regular hours. Please note that our Community Room is heavily used and may not always be available. Please call (352) 735-7180 option 5 to check on the room availability for viewing.
