Meet Our Newest Artists

We are pleased to announce the addition of two new artists at Art of Oconee. Both artists are, of course, local talent of exceptional quality. We are so happy to have them in our group and think you're going to love them, too!

Strolling By The Sea, Sheryl Lott

Sheryl Lott is a self proclaimed lover of life, and you can see that in the variety of subject matter she chooses to paint, including still life, figures that include the people she loves, beach scenes that evoke happy times for all of us, and landscapes that reflect the appreciation she has for all we have been given.










Portrait of My Sister, artist Jean Scanlin


Jean Scanlin Wright has made painting a particular focus in her life, after a life threatening health threat forced her to reflect on what is important to her. Painting won out and we are so glad it did! She has a particular gift with portraits, and she is available for commissions! As Jean puts it, "Painting is very personal to me. When I am commissioned to paint a portrait, I know my subject is so loved by someone that a portrait is their way of expressing that love and keeping the person close to them. It is an honor to be asked to convey that in a painting."
