Flat Rock artist’s work now on display

Local art enthusiasts have one more week to view the oil paintings of Flat Rock-based painter Wayne Campbell.

Campbell’s impressionistic oil pantings will be on display at the Southside Art League Off Broadway gallery in Greenwood through April 30.

A self-taught artist, Campbell was born in Scottsburg and honed his skills by studying with artists including Kay Poole, Ron Mack and C.W. Mundy. He won his first competition at age 12 for a portrait of Jesus, according to a statement from the studio. 

In addition to loose impressionistic style painting, he has done commissioned portraits. He shares a studio with his artist wife, Pam, and enjoys painting outdoors en plein air, according to the statement.
