Reception for Kendal Brown, Live Steel Drum Music at OC/Chapel Hill Visitors Center

  • Visitors Bureau 501 West Franklin Street Chapel Hill, NC, 27516 United States (map)

Join the Chapel Hill/Orange County Visitors Center, Friday, April 14, 2017 for refreshments and a reception showcasing Artist Kendal Brown. Brown's watercolor paintings will remain on display in the Visitors Center through May 2017.   Kendal Brown grew-up on an island on the Gulf Coast and loved being in and around water, observing migrating birds, and watching the ever-changing weather in the big sky.

“Drawing was a spontaneous pleasure from an early age,” says Brown.  “I was lucky to receive painting lessons as a teen. Being able to return to painting now is an unexpected and profoundly satisfying joy. I paint primarily in watercolor, though some pieces are mixed media.”  Brown’s continued interest in the natural world is reflected in most of her paintings.   

In addition, steel drummer, Wilton Dubois, will perform at the Visitors Center from 6:00pm-8:00pm. From Trinidad, a country smaller than Delaware, Wilton came here looking for a better life. Dubois later played steel drums with Trinidad Tripoli, a band brought to the states by Liberace. The band opened for Liberace, played on their own under contract with Warner Brothers, and once played on The Ed Sullivan Show. Dubois is now passionate about teaching children to make and play steel drums.
