Dodd artwork on display at Mason-Scharfenstein Museum of Art
DEMOREST - Pen and ink sketches and paintings by Gainesville artist and Piedmont College alum Rosemary Wood Dodd will be on display at the Mason-Scharfenstein Museum of Art in Demorest Jan. 6–30.
A reception and gallery talk with the artist will be held at 6 p.m., Jan. 16. Admission is free. The museum is open from 9 a.m.–5 p.m., Monday through Saturday.
A member of the Blue Angel Art Studio and the Quinlan Visual Arts Center in Gainesville, Dodd attended Wesleyan College and the University of Georgia before taking time out to raise a family.
In 1967, she returned to college at Piedmont and graduated magna cum laude in 1969, majoring in art and English. Now a artist, illustrator, and graphic designer, she worked in marketing for several area companies and for 13 years served as director of advancement and information services at Gainesville College (now the University of North Georgia/Gainesville).
With her late husband, Ed Dodd, she founded the Ed Dodd/Mark Trail Foundation to promote conservation and was a founding member of the Elachee Nature Science Center near Oakwood. She also was a co-founder of the Gainesville Ballet and the Gainesville Children's Theatre (now WonderQuest), as well as the North Georgia Community Foundation.
