Yadkin Arts Council, Yadkin River School: ARTcestry: DuMond’s Descendants and Their Art in Yadkin County

Yadkin Cultural Arts Center 226 E. Main St., Yadkinville, NC, United States

It is impossible to measure the importance of human teaching.  Great teachers of the past have an enduring influence on their students, their students’ students, and their students, students' students and so on through the ages.  It is very much so with the artist and great teacher, Frank Vincent DuMond.  He taught and painted from the late 1800’s until the mid-20th century.  Many of his students became exceedingly famous painters. Two are Norman Rockwell and Georgia O’Keefe.  Other students became teachers in their own right.  DuMond’s great-grandchild, artistically speaking, Viktoria Majestic, has continued the tradition of teaching right here in Yadkin County, NC.  She established the Yadkin River School of Art.  Viktoria and her students are excited to present, for the first time ever, their traditional oil paintings of still life, figurative, and landscapes scenes. Featured Artists: Vicktoria K. Majestic, Mark Andrews, Emily Lanier Cassidy, Gail Crotts, , Linda Fossier, Rose Fitzgerald, Ellen Frances Reece, Jane Townes, and Betty Vettor Opening Reception:  March 1, 2024 (5pm - 7pm) at the Yadkin Cultural Arts Center
